Training for Mental Health Providers

The Center for Anxiety & Behavioral Change (CABC) is excited to offer a School Refusal Training Institute (SR-TI). Dr. Lindsay Scharfstein will lead an 8-session, consultation series for mental health providers of youth who refuse school.

The SR-TI course will delineate evidence-based cognitive behavioral (CBT) approaches to the assessment and treatment of school refusal. Techniques will address underlying emotional concern(s) and simultaneous school re-entry. There will be ample opportunity for case discussion and consultation.

The sessions will take place on a monthly basis throughout the school year. We will meet for 8 sessions on Tuesdays, from 12pm- 1pm, at CABC in Rockville, MD, with the first meeting offered on September 25.  

For more information or to enroll in the consultation series, please contact Hope Brown at or Dr. Lindsay Scharfstein at or call 301-610-7850.
