Family Member Quotes

“The Program for Anxiety Disorders is very family friendly. Even if the child refuses treatment, they can work with the parents to change behaviors and improve the situation at home. Dr. Lebowitz’s non-judgmental approach to ‘Supportive Parenting’ gave us a plan and tools to manage our daughter’s anxiety and feel more effective in our role as parents.”

“Our daughter was in therapy for a year before going to Yale. We soon realized this was different. Her therapist got her to do things she would never agree to try before and she realized she is stronger than she thought. Thanks Yale!”

“My husband and I were like: ‘Finally, someone that really gets what we’re dealing with’. Before the SPACE treatment our son was feeling constantly overwhelmed and never stopped asking us for reassurances. Today he tried out for the school play!! Only a parent who has been where we’ve been can understand what that means to us!”

More about Yale Child Study Center Program for Anxiety Disorders

“We offer state of the art evidence based assessments for the purposes of diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment recommendations. A number of the assessments were developed by members of the program team and are used in clinics throughout the world… Our evaluation ensures that we are correctly identifying the anxiety problem or problems of your child, as well as the presence or absence of other possible problems such as depression or disruptive behaviors.”

“Children suffering from anxiety that interferes with their academic, social, or family functioning will be offered treatments that are supported by strong scientific evidence. Much of the evidence that underlies effective treatments for anxiety was obtained, and continues to be obtained, from program team members’ research projects.”

“We believe most parents are affected by their children’s disorder and that most parents long to be able to help their child to overcome adversity… We cast parents in the role of supporters and leaders and provide therapists with the tools to guide parents in helping their children to overcome anxiety and lead happier, healthier lives.”
– Eli R. Lebowitz, PhD. Preface to “Treating Childhood and Adolescent Anxiety: A Guide for Caregivers”
