Bringing together knowledge from her years of teaching and parenting, Márianna Csóti shows how parents and professionals can help children to move away from the negative thoughts and behaviour that can lead to school phobia.

An in-depth case study illustrates the challenges facing children with anxiety about attending school and the implications for the adults around them, followed by descriptions of related problems such as shyness, phobias and depression. Also provided are photocopiable pages for ease of reference and advice on many aspects of support, from how to contact professionals, to exercises to build confidence and promote relaxation.

This positive and practical book provides guidance for parents, carers, teachers and other child-support professionals, on dealing effectively with the difficulties of children whose lives are being adversely affected by school phobia and related anxieties.
