Accumulating evidence indicates that family/parenting behaviors are associated with the etiology of anxiety disorders in children. This article critically reviews what is known about how family/parenting behaviors have been measured in this literature and presents findings from studies examining the relation between family/parenting constructs and anxiety disorders in children. We review the role of family involvement in the treatment of anxiety disorders in children and conclude with avenues of future research.
