This talk will provide an overview of the most frequently occurring anxiety disorders. The identification and differential diagnosis of these disorders will be discussed within the framework of current DSM 5 criteria. The basic principles of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) will be reviewed and exposure-based interventions for anxiety disorders will be offered. I will discuss family accommodation and offer guidance on how parents can effectively manage anxiety related behaviors.
