Anne Marie Albano, PhD, ABPP
Contrary to what many may think, anxiety disorders in children are highly prevalent and result in significant problems in school, with friends, and within the family. Parenting a child with anxiety requires finding a balance between encouraging and comforting, but too much comfort may backfire and result in greater distress. Dr. Anne Marie Albano, a psychologist at Columbia and author of "You and Your Anxious Child", will discuss ways to identify problematic anxiety in your child, strategies for parents and children that can be of help, and when and how to seek the advice of a competent therapist.
