Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotion


The SPACE Program (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions) is a theory-driven intervention for the symptoms of childhood anxiety and by the biology of mammalian parental behaviour. SPACE teaches parents to recognize their accommodating behaviours, and to implement specific plans for reducing the accommodation while maintaining an empathic and supportive attitude towards the child. The treatment also includes tools for: Increasing parents' ability to work cooperatively together; coping with responses to the reduced accommodation, including anger and distress; and for enlisting the support of family and friends in what can sometimes be a difficult process.
