May is mental health awareness month, we are revisiting old episodes on child mental health. Including this episode on separation anxiety- one of our very first podcast episodes from 2018!
Separation anxiety is extremely common in infants and young children. With separation anxiety comes significant distress for parents and caregivers. Is there anything parents can do to help reduce their child’s distress when separating? Will a child grow out of this behavior? How long does it typically last? When should a parent get worried if their child’s anxiety seems unrelenting? All of these issues and more are discussed during this episode.
This episode written by Dr. Lena van der List and Dr. Dean Blumberg.
