Working with Parents of Anxious Children: Therapeutic Strategies for Encouraging Communication, Coping and Change


Product Description

Published USA, 2015
Child psychologist, Christopher McCurry, describes how parent caregiving behaviours can strongly influence the development and maintenance of anxiety in children. Overprotection, intrusiveness, poor communication and poor contingency management are discussed as well as positive skills and behaviours like emotion-regulation strategies - self-soothing, attention shifting and appropriate avoidance. Using a transdiagnostic approach, the chapters in this book guide the practitioner from assessment and case formulation through engaging the parents in the treatment process and the application of treatment strategies.

Christopher McCurry is a child psychologist in private practice in Seattle.
