The Legend and Myth of School Phobia.
Kearney, Christopher A.; And Others
School Psychology Quarterly, v10 n1 p65-85 Spr 1995
"School phobia" has generally referred to children and adolescents avoidant of school due to overwhelming fearfulness. This paper outlines the historical development of school phobia, including its transition from syndrome to symptom. Given the questionable validity of the construct, recommendations are made regarding future classification, assessment, and treatment methods for youngsters with school refusal behavior. (JPS)
