The Picture House in Pelham, NY 

If you are a parent of a child who struggles with anxiety,
you probably feel compelled to do all you can to make that anxiety go away.

Often the way parents do this is to make accommodations to avoid triggering their child and causing them distress. While the motivation is well intentioned, research has proven parental accommodations actually increase symptoms of childhood anxiety.

Join us as Dr. Eli Lebowitz from the Yale Child Study Center shares the ins and outs of SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions), a revolutionary new treatment approach he developed for childhood anxiety and OCD that is garnering great results.
