Childhood Anxiety and Parent-Based Treatment
One in three children experiences a clinically impairing anxiety disorder during their development, making anxiety the most common mental health concern among youth. Parents become entangled in their children’s anxiety symptoms through the process of family accommodation. This talk will introduce SPACE, a novel parent-based treatment for childhood and adolescent anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder focused on increasing supportive responses by parents and reducing family accommodation.
