Guideline for behandling af børn med angstlidelser

JAACAPSekretariatet for Referenceprogrammer (SfR) under Sundhedsstyrelsen afholdte onsdag den 28. november 2007 en høring om Referenceprogram for voksne med angstlidelser. (Referenceprogram er det saame som guideline). I referenceprogrammet anbefaler man bl.a. af der udarbejdes et Referenceprogram for børn med angstlidelser. Indtil det projekt måske bliver realiseret, kan jeg anbefale at man læser American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry udgave, såkaldte Practice Parameters, der kan hentes fra deres hjemmesider Anxiety Disorders (P-ANX) Vol 46 Feb 2007 . Anbefalingerne blev udgive i tidsskriftet Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry:

Practice Parameter for the Assessment and Treatment of Children and Adolescents With Anxiety Disorders
ABSTRACT
This revised practice parameter reviews the evidence from research and clinical experience and highlights significant advancements in the assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders since the previous parameter was published. It highlights the importance of early assessment and intervention, gathering information from various sources, assessment of comorbid disorders, and evaluation of severity and impairment. It presents evidence to support treatment with psychotherapy, medications, and a combination of interventions in a multimodal approach.
