    Treatment for Anxious Children

    Does your child struggle with anxiety? Does your child’s anxiety impact your family life? Then you may be interested in SPACE treatment.

    SPACE – Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions – was developed at the Yale Child Study Center. It is a parent-based intervention, meaning that parents will attend the sessions to learn the skills for supporting their child. Typically, children do not participate in the sessions.

    In SPACE treatment, we focus on helping parents learn new ways of supporting their child while reducing accommodations made for the child’s anxiety symptoms.

    For more information about SPACE treatment, visit https://www.spacetreatment.net/. Please reach out to Tandem to see if this approach is right for your family.
