This chapter illustrates the work of reducing family accommodation as a stand-alone and independent treatment, without concurrent child-based treatment. The chapter presents the case of Derek, a 16-year-old boy who was coping with Social Phobia and who refused to meet with the therapist for evaluation or treatment. The chapter first introduces the case and provides the rationale for working only with parents rather than focusing on attempting to work directly with Derek. Next the chapter reviews the course of treatment and demonstrates tools for overcoming the challenges inherent in working with parents without a child’s or adolescent’s engagement in the treatment process.
