Samantha Morrison, PhD, and Sasha Aschenbrand, PhD both work at CUCARD 

Columbia University Clinic for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Department of Child Psychiatry

This talk is about a childs inability to regularly attend school due to significant emotional distress, and causes them fear and anxiety usually in a child within the ages of 5 and 7.

It causes anxiety, and headaches in anticipation of going to school and will visit the nurse frequently during the day and will ask to come home early.

This will not only create educational, social, emotional and developmental problems for the child, but this causes difficulties within the family as well.

We will talk about how to identify and treat kids with these behaviors.
