Does your child have an intense fear of dogs? Insects? Heights? Thunderstorms? Needles?
Summer break is an excellent time for children and teenagers to face their fears without the added demands of the school year.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is short-term treatment that helps individuals overcome their phobias using evidence-based strategies.
This program offers:
A comprehensive initial evaluation with an anxiety specialist
Education on skills for coping with anxiety and reducing the likelihood of fainting
Gradual exposure to fears while practicing coping skills, all with the guidance and support of a clinician
Exposure practice may include an intensive, one-time session (approximately 3 hours) or shorter regular meetings
This specialty program is led by Dr. Kristin Kunkle, a licensed clinical psychologist at The Columbia University Clinic for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CUCARD), a ColumbiaDoctors clinic located at 3 Columbus Circle (Broadway between 57 Street and 58 Street), Suite 1425.
For more information, please contact Yael Warach, CUCARD's Program Coordinator, at 212-342-0951.
