School refusal is not a disorder or diagnosis; rather a behavior, a symptom that indicates there is something substantial going on for the child internally and perhaps in their environment. As often is the case for play therapists, we are helping children and families resolve the underlying issues of a behavior as well as address the symptomatic behavior itself.
This training will provide strategies for therapists to use in the playroom for assessment and treatment appropriate for children exhibiting school refusing behavior and their parents/caregivers. The focus is on elementary, middle and high school age students.
Original recording date: March 27, 2023 Length: 180 Minutes
