Our online 8-week SPACE group launches
on Tuesday April 9, 2024!
FunFair Family

Flourish clinicians are hosting an 8-week SPACE program designed to educate and empower parents of children and adolescents with anxiety, OCD, or related issues! 

Groups are held virtually on Tuesdays from 12-1pm EST

We start on Tuesday April 9, 2024

Registration is limited to 6 families

What is SPACE and is it right for my family? 

SPACE, which stands for "Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions," was developed by Dr. Eli Lebowitz at the Yale Child Study Center as a parent-based treatment program for children and adolescents with anxiety, OCD, and related problems.

Parents who participate in SPACE will learn skills and tools to help their child overcome anxiety, OCD or related problems with a focus on changes that parents can make to their own behavior, as opposed to making their child change. 

The two main changes that parents learn to make in SPACE treatment are:

(1) to respond more supportively to their anxious child and

(2) to reduce the accommodations they have been making to the child's symptoms.

You can read more about SPACE on Dr. Lebowitz's website:

And check out his book, "Breaking Free of Childhood Anxiety and OCD" here.


Some of the main anxiety problems treated with SPACE include:

Separation anxiety

Social anxiety

Generalized anxiety

Fears and phobias

Panic disorder and Agoraphobia

Selective mutism

Obsessive-compulsive disorder
