Understanding School Refusal Seminar

Understanding school refusal seminar

Does your child worry and feel anxious so that it impacts on their ability to attend school?

Would you like to gain a greater understanding and learn some helpful strategies to support them?

Children worry about many different things.

Learning to cope with their anxiety, stress and fear can be really difficult, not only for them, but also for their parents and family.

Developing a better understanding of why children refuse to go to school and some strategies to help understand and support them is empowering for families.

The Anxiety Recovery Centre of Victoria (ARCVic), a specialist state-wide mental health organisation, is passionate about supporting and educating parents so that they feel able to help their children.
