Description

Anxiety is a prevalent disorder among school-aged children. Many of these children are not identified and suffer in silence. Anxiety that is left untreated in childhood can lead to other disorders later in life such as depression. Early identification and intervention is essential to ensure student success in school setting and prevent other complications. Currently, cognitive behavioral therapy as a treatment for anxiety in school-aged children has been used successfully in a clinical setting. As a result, researchers have been developing and conducting clinical trials of cognitive based treatment approaches to use in a school setting. Current programs designed for the treatment of anxiety that can be applied to a school setting will be explored in this literature review. Programs that take place during the period of a child’s life where anxiety is most prevalent; have the greatest potential for the successful treatment of childhood anxiety disorders.
