At the Child Anxiety Resilience Education and Support (CARES) Center our team is dedicated to encouraging the development of resilient, emotionally healthy children.

What we do

Our programs and outreach center around five specific areas:

  • Education and Prevention: impacting youth, families, schools, and communities through increased recognition and understanding of childhood anxiety
  • Training: to support clinicians and scientists in advancing the health and resilience of families affected by stress and anxiety
  • Innovation: discovering new technologies that support children who are dealing with anxiety and their families, and to find new and effective methods of education, training, and intervention
  • Research: to develop, test, and disseminate new school- and community-based strategies for reducing stress and enhancing resilience among children
  • Public Awareness and Advocacy: promoting  a new standard of best practices in schools, local communities, and other systems of healthcare built from evidence-based, family-centered anxiety prevention research

Online Resources

In addition to in-person trainings for providers, parents, and school staff, the CARES Center offers a variety of online resources to help with the early identification of childhood anxiety as well as strategies for building resilience that can help youth and families overcome the challenges related to its symptoms.
