Practice parameters for the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents with anxiety disorders. American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.


Anxiety disorders comprise one of the most prevalent categories of psychopathology in children and adolescents. These revised practice parameters highlight the DSM-IV changes for anxiety disorders and review the literature related to the assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders in children and adolescents. Up-to-date information on longitudinal outcome data, assessment of anxiety, parent-child interventions, and use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors has been added to the previous parameters, published in September 1993. Recommendations for evaluation and multimodal approaches to treatment are presented.
