My guest this week is Dr. Yaara Shimshoni, an associate research scientist at Yale School of Medicine specializing in research on anxiety disorders in children and new treatment approaches involving parents. Dr. Shimshoni collaborates with Dr. Eli Lebowitz, at the Yale Child Study Center, on developing and researching the SPACE Program for improving childhood anxiety.
In this episode, Dr. Shimshoni and I discuss the SPACE program, a new treatment approach for childhood anxiety. SPACE works closely with parents by targeting and slowly eliminating family accommodations that have been made specifically to help alleviate their child’s anxiety. Research shows that parents working to eliminate these accommodations have effectively helped their children to gain independence managing their anxiety symptoms.
