Abstract

Anxiety disorders are arguably the most common psychiatric disorder in childhood. Although the anxiety disorders have many different symptom patterns, all anxiety disorders include an anxious target symptom (e.g., separation, humiliation, etc.), avoidance behavior and reassurance seeking that can be significantly distressing and impairing. Despite the prevalence of these disorders, they are often not diagnosed and more often not treated effectively. Treatment can be extremely helpful in reducing symptoms and improving function. If left untreated, anxiety disorders can complicate the presentation of neurological disorders and have a negative impact on treatment outcome.
