This chapter covers some of the common obstacles and challenges that clinicians are likely to face in addressing family accommodation in the treatment of childhood anxiety symptoms. The chapter provides useful and practical tools for avoiding and overcoming these challenges. Among the common challenges discussed in the chapter are difficulty in fostering a cooperative and productive working alliance between two parents, coping with aggressive or disruptive responses in the child, and coping with threats to the self by the child in response to parents reducing accommodation. The chapter includes clinical vignettes and sample texts that illustrate the strategies for overcoming each challenge.
