A parent based treatment program.
What is SPACE?
Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions, (SPACE) is a parent-based treatment program for children and adolescents with anxiety, OCD, and related problems.
Developed at the Yale Child Study Center, SPACE has been tested and found to be very efficacious in randomized controlled clinical trials.
Who is SPACE for?
SPACE aims to treat children and adolescents with anxiety disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorder. SPACE does not require your child’s buy-in to be effective. They don’t even have to attend the sessions.
When SPACE treatment is successful children feel less anxious and function better following treatment.
SPACE can attend our Individual or Group formats.
Some of the main anxiety problems treated with SPACE include:
- Separation anxiety
- Social anxiety
- Generalized anxiety
- Fears and phobias
- Panic disorder and Agoraphobia
- Selective mutism
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
