Learning Objectives:

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Assess for parental accommodations within the context of pediatric anxiety
  • Discuss psychoeducation for evidence-based, systems-focused approaches for anxiety with parents of anxious children
  • Identify and overcome barriers to effective parental involvement in therapy

Workshop Description:

Does including parents in treatment make you shudder? Working with parents is an imperative part of working with children, but many clinicians struggle with the best ways to incorporate them for optimal therapeutic outcomes. With anxiety disorders, successful outcomes often hinge on changing larger familial patterns. Still, many barriers and misconceptions lead to low parent involvement in anxiety treatment plans.

In this workshop, we will discuss the current research on parental involvement in the treatment of anxiety disorders in children and how to identify and overcome barriers. We will discuss evidence-based treatments for anxious children that utilize parents as the mechanism for change while also learning how to assess parental accommodations and outline family patterns that may be sustaining symptoms.
