The Relationship of Family Accommodation with Pediatric Anxiety Severity: Meta-analytic Findings and Child, Family and Methodological Moderators. Child Psychiatry Hum Dev. 2020 Apr 03;: Authors: Iniesta-Sepúlveda M, Rodríguez-Jiménez T, Lebowitz ER, Goodman WK, Storch EA Abstract Given the importance of family accommodation for the course, treatment and prognosis of anxiety in pediatric populations, we conducted a meta-analysis to estimate the magnitude and potential moderators of the relationship between accommodation and anxiety severity. Study selection criteria were: (1) included quantitative measures of accommodation and anxiety severity, (2) sampled participants younger than 19 years, (3) a sample size greater than 10, (4) reported statistical data needed to compute effect sizes, and (4) be in English or Spanish. Search procedures included assessment of electronic databases, systematic reviews and empirical studies, and email inquiries. Effect size was Pearson correlation coefficient, assuming a random-effects model. Positive moderate association was observed for measures administered to parents. This was moderated by the percentage of children with separation anxiety and selective mutism. Global effect sizes were small for measures administered to children and when accommodation was reported by parents and anxiety by children. Implications for assessment and treatment are discussed.

Abstract Dysregulated fear (DF), display of high-fear in low-threat contexts, has been shown to predict child anxiety development. Maternal protective, comforting, and intrusive behaviors have also been linked to child anxiety development and may be candidate mechanisms linking DF to anxiety. First, the relation between DF (age 2) and child separation anxiety (age 4) as indirectly linked by maternal protective, comforting, and intrusive behaviors was investigated. Second, the relation between DF and social anxiety (age 4) through parenting behaviors was investigated. Results suggested DF significantly predicted ch...
