Keywords:case studies, clinical case studies, child anxiety, cognitive behavioral treatment, group treatment, non-responders, parental involvement, stepped-care treatment
This paper responds to a commentary by Perini, Wuthrich, and Rapee (2013) on two case studies on cognitive behavioral therapy for anxious children and their parents using the "Cool Kids" treatment program (Lundkvist-Houndoumadi & Thastum, 2013a; Lundkvist-Houndoumadi & Thastum, 2013b). In our response we address the following topics: including fathers in the therapy; a stepped-care approach to treatment; treatment of non-responders; parental anxiety as a predictor of treatment response; combining group and individual formats; and inclusion of students in the treatment.
