Yale Child Study Center Program for Anxiety Disorders
The Yale Child Study Center Program for Anxiety Disorders is a leading clinical and research center for the assessment and treatment of children with anxiety disorders. We also specialize in childhood concerns that commonly co-occur with anxiety disorders (e.g., selective mutism and school avoidance). We serve youth from preschool age until young adulthood.
If eligible, our assessment and psychotherapy services are offered as part of clinical research, and are therefore free of charge. By participating in these studies, you and your child will be providing information that will be helpful in expanding scientific knowledge about fears and anxieties in youth.
Our team consists of professors, postdoctoral fellows, research associates, Yale graduate students in clinical psychology, undergraduate research assistants, and administrative staff.
The Program for Anxiety Disorders serves as a training site for psychology postdoctoral fellows, predoctoral interns, graduate students, and undergraduates as well as psychiatry residents. We welcome trainees who wish to learn more about how to care children and teenagers with anxiety disorders. Please contact Dr. Silverman or Dr. Lebowitz to discuss your training goals.
