Transdisciplinary Studies of CBT for Anxiety in Youth
Anxiety disorders in childhood and adolescence are often associated with difficulties in family, social, and school environments. The investigators in this study are interested in learning how talk therapy influences children and adolescents with anxiety disorders. They hope to obtain a better understanding of these disorders and to be able to predict who will benefit most from different therapies in order to design better treatment options. Findings from this study may improve the chance of early detection and treatment of anxiety disorders among children and adolescents.
