Welcome to the Child & Adolescent CARD Program. Anxiety disorders are one of the primary mental health problems affecting children and adolescents today, and are associated with considerable impairments to children and families and high costs to society. Left untreated, anxiety and its related disorders are linked to the development of future psychopathology. The Child and Adolescent Fear and Anxiety Treatment Program, directed by Donna B. Pincus, Ph.D., is committed to advancing our knowledge about efficacious treatments for children and adolescents with anxiety disorders and their families so that youth with these disorders can resume healthy activities and return to developmentally appropriate functioning.
