Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Childhood Anxiety Disorders
Over the past decade, multiple controlled trials have demonstrated the efficacy of cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) for the treatment of anxiety disorders in children and adolescents. Relying heavily on behavioral exposure, cognitive restructuring, and psychoeducation, CBT for child anxiety has been shown to be adaptable to a variety of implementation formats, including individual, family, and group treatment. This article describes the conceptual framework underlying CBT and the key elements of this treatment approach. Important developmental and family considerations in treatment are discussed, and the empirical literature is reviewed.
