Eli R. Lebowitz, PhD, studies and treats child and adolescent anxiety at the Yale School of Medicine Child Study Center, where he is director of the Program for Anxiety Disorders. Dr. Lebowitz' work has been recognized by private and public organizations including the Brain and Behavior Foundation, The National Institute of Mental Health, and The National Center for Advancing Translational Science.

"In clear language and without a whiff of blame, Lebowitz hands parents the key to unhooking themselves and their children from excessive anxiety. Well organized and relatable, Breaking Free of Child Anxiety and OCD is an indispensable guide to the SPACE program -- a unique, powerful, evidence-based method of treating childhood anxiety." -- Dawn Huebner, PhD, and author of Outsmarting Worry and What to Do When You Worry Too Much
