Anxiety disorders are exceedingly prevalent in children and adolescents. Anxious children rely heavily on their parents for help in coping with anxiety and parents frequently become entangled in their children’s symptoms through the process of family accommodation. Dr. Lebowitz will review cutting-edge research on neurobiological systems that drive these patterns of interactions between parents and anxious children, including the circuitry and chemistry of the brain. This webinar will introduce SPACE, a novel and efficacious parent-based treatment for childhood anxiety disorders focused on reducing accommodation and increasing supportive responses to childhood anxiety symptoms.
