With prevalence ranging from 12 to 20%, anxiety disorders are the most common reason for mental health referrals. Anxiety disorders are often associated with high comorbidity and negatively impact a child's development, as impairments in school, family, and social functioning take hold for the long term. This workshop presents the psychopathology of the most common childhood anxiety disorders in school-age youth. The objectives are to present (a) diagnostic and assessment methods for use in school settings; (b) the components of cognitive–behavioral therapy; and (c) our developmentally informed treatment model, focused on managing anxiety while meeting age-appropriate milestones.
