Beyond the Basics: Targeting Developmental Milestones in the Treatment of Anxiety

Tuesday, February 16, 2016 9:09 am

Disability and distress associated with anxiety disorders can make young adults vulnerable to developmental impairments. A normal by-product of increasing responsibility and freedom, increased anxiety is expected throughout the transition from adolescence to young adulthood. But clinical anxiety may stall this transition, keeping a young adult dependent on family members and lagging in achieving age-appropriate tasks. Certain interactions characteristic of families may involve the parents’ perception that a young adult cannot handle responsibilities or will miss out on important opportunities and milestones such as social or academic tasks. Parental overinvolvement then interferes with advanced problem-solving, complex social-interpersonal skills, and self-regulation skills necessary for healthy and productive functioning. At times, anxiety is at a level where multimodal treatment with medication and CBT is necessary.
