Parents and caregivers
Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE) is a parent-based intervention for treating child and adolescent anxiety and related disorders. SPACE strategies can significantly reduce the problems associated with:
Fears and Phobias
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
In this educational course, parents will learn and practice the evidence-based strategies that research has shown to be effective in reducing their child's anxiety problems. By the end of this course, parents can expect to:
have a deeper understanding of their child's anxiety
know what to say and what to do (or not do!) when their child is anxious
feel more confident in their ability to set limits and boundaries that fit the family's needs (incuding the parents' needs!)
To learn more about the SPACE model, watch this Ted Talk from the developer of the SPACE Treatment, Eli Lebowitz.
