Lecture Description:

It is well established that anxiety disorders are associated with early and continued parental over protection, a parenting style that contributes to maintenance of the disorder. And yet, research has been focused solely on the youth with anxiety, and not on the family system.  In this presentation Dr. Albano discusses how the outcomes and limitations of clinical trials shaped a developmental and evidence-based treatment approach for youth suffering with anxiety.  Dr. Albano, the director of a large faculty clinical practice, as well as a principal investigator of the largest study of anxiety in youth, will discuss the family-based model, conceptualization, and practice for children from ages 3 to 25 who suffer with anxiety.  Challenges and future directions will be presented.

You will learn:
1.      Participants will learn to recognize the strengths and limitations of clinical trials, and understand the outcomes of the Child/Adolescent Anxiety Multimodal Study (CAMS).
2.      Participants will learn key developmental tasks and family factors that impact anxiety and child development.
3.      Participants will learn a new treatment model for involving family in the child's treatment, at various developmental stages from ages 3 to 25, that evolved from research investigations.
