Dr. Christopher Kearney, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, announces the resumption of services at the School Refusal Clinic.
The School Refusal Clinic is resuming its service at UNLV. The clinic is an on-campus facility designed to assess and treat children and adolescents aged 5-14 years who have difficulty attending school or remaining in classes for an entire day. These problems may be the result of specific fears, social difficulties, separation anxiety, or family problems.
Fees are based on each family's ability to pay. Parents are encouraged to contact Dr. Christopher Kearney, assistant professor of psychology, at 895-3305 for information and scheduling.
The assessment procedure typically consists of separate, semi structured interviews with the child and parents and the completion of several checklists and self-report measures. This process usually lasts 2 hours. Treatment options are usually discussed after an initial evaluation of all information.
The clinic will continue its services until April 15, 1995.
