Anxiety is one of the most common psychological complaints reported by children and is associated with significant psychosocial and physical health problems, a poor prognosis, and significant economic burden. Anxiety is transmitted within families, with parenting variables implicated in the etiology of childhood anxiety. However, meta-analyses have concluded that the addition of a parent component to child-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy does not enhance children’s outcomes. A much smaller body of work has examined the question from the opposite angle, asking, Is it sufficient to work only with parents of anxious children? This research is reviewed and a new parent-only group cognitive-behavioral therapy intervention (Fear-less Triple P) is introduced.
