Abstract

Anxiety disorders are among the most common psychiatric conditions in children and adolescents. Empirical evidence suggests that the majority of youth will show clinically meaningful benefits after a short-term course of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). This article presents an update on the status of this treatment literature and provides clinicians with a description of specific CBT strategies. A case example illustrating the implementation of these strategies is also included. Tips for managing frequently encountered obstacles and a clinical algorithm for sequencing strategies are discussed.
