Anxiety and School Avoidance In Youth: Solution Focused Interventions That Produce Results

Friday, January 26, 2018
Educators, school counselors, and mental health professionals have ever increasing demands, limited time and tremendous responsibility. Adding to these challenges are the needs of youth who are coping with anxiety and school avoidance. School avoidance will affect up to 28% of youth at some point. 25% of teens and 30% of girls will experience significant anxiety.
