University of Nevada Las Vegas Child School Refusal and Anxiety Disorders Clinic,NV (Outpatient)

The UNLV Child School Refusal and Anxiety Disorders Clinic

The UNLV Child School Refusal and Anxiety Disorders Clinic is a research-based outpatient facility designed to assess and treat youths with school refusal behavior and/or related anxiety problems .We accept youths 5-16 years of age whose primary behavior problem is school refusal behavior and/or anxiety disorders. Common anxiety-related problems include social and separation anxiety, generalized anxiety/worry, panic, fears and phobias, selective mutism, perfectionism, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and symptoms of post traumatic stress.

Parents may contact the Director of the Clinic, Dr. Christopher Kearney, via telephone (702-895-0183) or email (chris.kearney@unlv.edu) for more information or for screening and possible assessment. Dr. Kearney is a Distinguished Professor of clinical child psychology at UNLV and an expert in the assessment and treatment of youths with school refusal behavior and related anxiety conditions. Treatment options for each case are discussed once the initial formal assessment is complete. The general goal in many cases seen at the Clinic is to return a child to full-time school attendance and to achieve significant reductions in distress.
