It offers valuable insights into dealing with any number of challenges, from children's worries about the world to the parental tendency to overprotect to teachers' need to "recharge" in the midst of a stressful day. Practical and accessible, the book suggests simple ways of guiding honest and responsive discussion, as well as liberating activities that encourage students to disengage from their fears. It addresses children's heavy exposure to violence and stereotypes, especially through the media. It shows teachers how to explore major issues in the lives of their students in a healthy, positive way, and how to encourage stronger, more aware, independent, and successful learners."--Publisher.

This program is a unique prescriptive model for the treatment of school refusal behavior of children ages 5 to 17. Using a two-component program, this model divides the school refusal behavior into four basic groups based on the reasons why children refuse school: avoidance of school situations that provoke general negative affectivity; escape from aversive social/evaluative situations; attention; and positive tangible reinforcement. Use it with children who are completely absent from school, who attend but then leave school during the day, who go to school following intense morning behavioral problems, or who display unusual distress during school days leading to pleas to parents or others for future non-attendance.
