    Abstract

    There have been significant advances in the assessment and treatment of child and adolescent anxiety disorders over the past 10 years. These advances provide clinicians with psychometrically sound diagnostic interviews, and self-report measures of symptoms and maintenance factors. Manualized cognitive behavioral treatment packages address the four major maintenance factors with significant success across a variety of populations and are sufficiently flexible to incorporate additional treatment components for comorbid presentations. Recent research on alternative methods of presenting treatment have significant potential for improving access to specialized services for isolated families and to improve the value of therapist's time.
