Family therapy can be very effective for children with anxiety because it creates an environment where the child does not feel like the problem. Anxiety disorders can run in families and parents with anxiety are more likely to have children with anxiety. Family therapy is the process of identifying challenging situations and learning how to problem solve, communicate and look at things from a different perspective. Family work incorporates parents and the child in the process so that each of them can learn and practice new skills to help reduce anxiety and improve quality of life.
