This chapter introduces the concept of family accommodation and discusses its relation to other aspects of parenting behavior. The chapter provides definitions of family accommodation and illustrates the concept through examples of common accommodations of child anxiety symptoms. The chapter also describes two methods for categorizing accommodations. Accommodations can be classified based on either the form of accommodation provided or based on the domain of anxiety symptom that is being accommodated. Examples of each are provided, including illustrative examples of accommodation in each of the common anxiety disorders. The chapter also reviews accommodation provided by individuals other than parents, including teachers, siblings, and other relatives.
