Helping Children and Teens With Anxiety Disorders and Depression

Understanding New Research and Treatment

When anxiety takes over, it interferes with your child’s ability to cope with fear, worry, and depression — and treatment is necessary.

See Triumph Over Shyness: Conquering Social Anxiety Disorder.
