In your own words, please describe the study.

What are some of the key indicators of behavioral inhibition (BI)? How does this correlate to the risk of anxiety disorders?

What are some examples of intrusive-controlling (IC) parenting behaviors?

What do you hope this study will uncover?

  1. Establish the influences of parents’ regulation on their parenting behaviors and test whether these links are moderated by parents’ anxiety.
  2. Test the influences of parents’ regulation and parenting on reductions in child BI across treatment, whether children’s own regulation mediates these associations (i.e., is one mechanism instigating intervention response), and the moderating role of parents’ anxiety (i.e., Does the intervention work better or worse for anxious or non-anxious parents? And, what does their regulation have to do with it?)
