Treating School Phobia Using Behavioral Consultation: A Case Study

pp. 104—107

School phobia presents parents, educators, and school psychologists with the substantial challenge of helping phobic children overcome their irrational fear of the school situation.O’Leary and Wilson (1975) indicate that school phobia is the most frequent phobia for which children are referred to mental health clinics. Since school phobia is a relatively frequent disorder, especially in the first three grades of school (Ross, 1974), it is incumbent upon school psychologists and other concerned parties to alleviate this irrational fear quickly and efficiently so that the child can derive maximum benefit from the educational process.
