My guest this week is Dr. Eli Lebowitz, a professor at the Yale School of Medicine Child Study Center who directs the Program for Anxiety Disorders while studying and treating childhood and adolescent anxiety. Dr. Lebowitz’s research focuses on the development, neurobiology, and treatment of anxiety and related disorders, with special emphasis on family dynamics and the role of parents in these disorders. He is the lead investigator on multiple funded research projects and is the author of research papers, books, and chapters on childhood and adolescent anxiety. Dr. Lebowitz’s work has been recognized by private and public organizations including the Brain and Behavior Foundation, the National Institute of Mental Health, and The National Center for Advancing Translational Science. He is also the father of three great boys. In this episode, Dr. Lebowitz and I discuss the steps to an effective at-home approach to treat children’s anxiety and OCD. By utilizing the scientifically proven program, SPACE, Dr. Lebowitz demonstrates how this parent-focused approach can result in improvement not only for the child suffering from anxiety or OCD but for the entire family unit. Dr. Lebowitz gives parents and caregivers the tools for empowerment and success to help their child overcome anxiety and OCD in his new step-by-step book, ‘Breaking Free of Child Anxiety and OCD’.
