Description

Course Format

Recorded webinar.


Anxiety disorders are the most common class of mental health problems in youth, with onset in early childhood and increasing prevalence building through to emerging adulthood. Youth with anxiety disorders evidence significant distress, impairments in functioning, and are at high risk for the development of secondary conditions such as depression and substance use by adolescence. Notable for parents of an anxious child is a phenomenon of "over-protection" and "over-control." Parenting occurs over a substrate of development where the child’s independent interactions with the environment shape to refine skills and cognitive-emotional abilities that propel the child towards greater independence and self-confidence. For youth with anxiety and related disorders however, everyday tasks often feel insurmountable and involve much upset and reliance on parent intervention in the form of over involvement. While the youth may be calmed in the moment by parent involvement, anxiety and avoidance behavior are reinforced.

Although cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and medication are effective treatments for anxiety in youth (Walkup, et al., 2008), traditionally the family has been of secondary focus or minimally involved in CBT, with developmental milestones and age-appropriate functioning also not a primary target of treatment. The unique features of the family environments and situations experienced by youth calls for therapists to assist youth and their caretakers to understanding and meet the tasks of development as well as address anxiety and other mental health conditions in the child. Central to treatment is for youth to take on age-related challenges of anxiety and daily living with appropriate parental guidance and support. This also means addressing directly the parents' history, beliefs, and expectations for their child, and the interactions and dynamics of the family system.

Dr. Albano will present a novel model integrating the core components of effective CBT for anxiety in youth with novel family-based and developmental components designed to address patient-caretaker dependency, role transitions, and attainment of behaviors necessary for greater independent functioning within the contexts that are unique to the child’s age and developmental stage.  Adaptations of this model for younger children, adolescents, and emerging adults will be presented.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize the tasks of development necessary to master independence on the way to adulthood
  2. Describe the way that child anxiety can interact with and shape overprotective parenting, and the consequences on continued anxiety and stalled development
  3. Identify Evidence-Based models for parental involvement in youth-focused cognitive behavioral treatment to address anxiety
  4. Apply strategies for addressing parental over involvement and youth dependency including family communication and problem solving
