This chapter discusses reducing family accommodation as a means of treating childhood anxiety. The chapter covers both reducing family accommodation as a stand-alone treatment and reducing family accommodation as part of a broader treatment strategy that also includes direct child-based therapy. Research supporting the efficacy of reducing family accommodation to treat child anxiety is reviewed, and practical considerations such as when to introduce the topic of family accommodation and how to optimize the sequence of child and parent work are discussed. Additional benefits of reducing family accommodation, including improved family functioning, positive impact on siblings, and improved parent–child relationship are also discussed.
