Working With Parents of Anxious Children

Anxiety symptoms are one of the top reasons parents at my school seek my advice. Working with parents of anxious children often requires unpacking problematic parenting behaviors like feeding avoidance. This book covers overprotection, intrusiveness, poor communication, and poor contingency management. It gives counselors strategies to support good communication and emotion-regulation strategies. The techniques recommended draw from cognitive behavioral therapy, as well as acceptance-based and mindfulness therapies. McCurry (2015) has provided school counselors with a valuable resource.
