Children and young people avoid school for lots of different reasons. This workshop is designed to build understanding around what some of these reasons might be, and to upskill the adults in the lives of children to act with competence and confidence around this behaviour. It is highly recommended that you also attend the session on anxiety as this is often a key driver of school avoidance.
This online webinar is suitable for parents, caregivers and anyone working with children and teens who may be avoiding school.
