DESE x Thriving Minds: School Avoidance
“School Avoidance” has been identified as a growing concern for educators and families alike amidst the overall youth mental health crisis in our state and nation. There are no simple or magic solutions for working with students who are struggling to come to school—so we can’t promise to share any such solutions—but we can benefit from looking as carefully as possible at what is happening with, and how we might best use available resources and tools to support, these young people. This session will do just that, including considering terminology and understandings, identifying what a “school avoidance” intervention might include, sharing some tools that we know of, and thinking together about some sample case studies.
