About the Author

Dr. Christopher Kearney is a noted authority on school refusal behavior and anxiety in youth. His research interests include school refusal behavior, selective mutism, posttraumatic stress disorder in maltreated youth, perfectionism, and other anxiety-related conditions in children and adolescents as well as issues of quality of life in persons with severe handicaps. He has published several books and numerous book chapters and journal articles on these. Dr. Kearney also conducts workshops for school districts and mental health and other agencies regarding school refusal behavior and selective mutism. Dr. Anne Marie Albano is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of anxiety and related disorders in youth. She has published more than 100 articles and chapters and is the co-author of several cognitive behavioral treatment manuals and of the Anxiety Disorders Interview Schedule for Children, all published by Oxford University Press. Dr. Albano served as a Principal Investigator of a 6-site, National Institute of Mental Health-sponsored study entitled


"Kearney and Albano take the complicated behavior of school refusal, illustrate its differing etiologies, and present proven strategies for each of the different underlying disorders. Consistent with their clinical expertise, the manual not only outlines the interventions but addresses many co-existing issues of family management. Using clear and specific examples, this manual is a must-have for anyone who works with children who are reluctant to go to school." -- Deborah C. Beidel, PhD, ABPP, Professor of Psychiatry, Penn State College of Medicine
