Abstract

Volume one of this thesis consists of three parts. Part one is a literature review that examines pre-treatment demographic, clinical, parent, child and therapist characteristics as predictors of outcome in the treatment of child anxiety disorders. Methodological weaknesses associated with existing prediction studies are considered and recommendations made for future research. Part two is an empirical paper which investigates predictors of treatment attrition in a guided manualised self-help CBT intervention for anxious children, delivered solely via parents. The results are discussed in relation to clinical implications and recommendations are made for increasing retention in low-intensity, parent-led treatments for childhood anxiety disorders. Part three is a critical appraisal which discusses the limitations of using observational measures to assess parent-child interactions and the challenges associated with outcome measurement in child anxiety research. The background context to the research is also outlined and the advantages and disadvantages of conducting research using pre-collected data are considered.
