Identifying Serious Anxiety in Your Child
In this podcast, Dr. Ioana Pal, PsyD tackles the topic of anxiety in children. Anxiety is treatable, but 80 percent of kids with a diagnosable anxiety disorder are not getting treatment. Anxiety is a normal part of childhood, and every child goes through phases, which is normal. However, research shows that untreated children with anxiety disorders are at higher risk to perform poorly in school, miss out on important social experiences, and engage in substance abuse.
