Social Phobias: A Study of Adolescents Unable to Attend School Because of Morbid Fears, Based on Six Cases at the Saint Charles Child Guidance Clinic, Brooklyn, New York, 1953-1957
This research on school phobia and the reasons influencing its development stems from three sources. firsts from my past experience in social work having observed the problem of school phobia in a number of children; second, having read about this prevalent disorder in pertinent literature; and third, during the course of his formal training for the profession of social work, the writer was placed for field work practice at the St. Charles Child Guidance Clinic where in discussion with his supervisor it was brought to light that school phobia is frequently encountered as a problem at the clinic. Assured that ample case material should be on hand to warrent this subject being used as a research topic, the writer then made the decision to base his research effort on the topic, school phobia.
