Child Anxiety Program
Did you know that anxiety is the #1 mental health concern in children?
Growing up is hard work. Given the challenges faced by children, adolescents, and families, it is important that our children have the skills to cope with anxiety as well as other significant stressors they will likely face in the course of development.
The mission of the URI Child Anxiety Program is to contribute to the greater understanding of childhood anxiety disorders through treatment, training, and research. Here, at the Child Anxiety Program, we:
- Provide psychological evaluations, empirically-supported treatments, and psychoeducational opportunities that are cost effective and accessible,
- Offer new professionals the best possible training and extensive supervision,
- Raise public awareness of childhood anxiety disorders through community outreach and dissemination of research, and
- Dedicate our clinic procedures to enable the evaluation and refinement of our services.
Our goal is to:
- Give you a better understanding about your child’s anxiety,
- Explain who we are, what we do and how we do it,
- Identify who can benefit from the Child Anxiety Program, and
- Explain the simple steps to be taken in order to become a client.
