This chapter illustrates the work of reducing family accommodation as part of a larger treatment strategy that also includes working directly with the anxious child. The chapter presents the case of Heather, a 14-year-old girl who suffered from generalized anxiety disorder. The chapter first introduces the case, including a detailed description and history. Next, the chapter describes the course of treatment with a focus on the work with parents and the ways it was integrated into Heather’s treatment. The chapter includes transcripts from treatment sessions with parents and child and exemplifies some of the problems and solutions in working with families of anxious children.
