Addressing family accommodation begins with assessing the extent and form of accommodations being provided. Assessing family accommodation should be part of the broader assessment plan when evaluating childhood anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder. This chapter provides guidelines and tools for the initial assessment of family accommodation. Methods of assessing family accommodation include clinical interviewing and structured rating scales. The chapter provides many examples and suggestions for ways to broach the topic of family accommodation with parents in an empathic and nonjudgmental manner. The chapter also provides detailed information on the currently available rating scales for measuring family accommodation and the relative advantages of each tool.
