Breaking Free of Child Anxiety and OCD
A Scientifically Proven Program for ParentsBook - 2021
"This is a question I get asked very frequently by parents of children and adolescents coping with elevated anxiety. This book answers that question by saying, "YOU can help your child!" If you are the parent of a child with anxiety or obsessive-compulsive problems, it is my hope that by following the steps described in these pages, you will be able to significantly reduce your child's anxiety and improve their quality of life. The steps laid out in this book are a systematic treatment approach that has been tested in clinical trials and found to be very effective. The name of the treatment program is SPACE, which stands for Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions. What many parents find most exciting about SPACE, and what makes it most different from other child anxiety treatments, is that it focuses entirely on parents and provides them with the tools to help their children. In fact, here's a promise: At no point in this book will parents be required to pressure their children into doing things they don't want to do. In working through this book, you'll only be trying to change the behavior of the one person you can control the most, yourself"-- Provided by publisher.
