Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE) applications (2 Hours)

Laura Fuller, PhD, ABPP is an Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Iowa's Carver College of Medicine. She currently serves as the secretary for IPA, and is an ad-hoc member of the Membership Committee. Together with colleagues Jamie Elizalde, PhD, NCSP, an Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, and Lea Boldt, PhD, an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, and graduate student Jordan Harris, BS, from the U of I's Clinical Psychology program in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, we have attended Dr. Lebowitz's 2 day SPACE parent training, and Dr. Elizalde has additionally attended the training on SPACE with ARFID. Since completing the training, we have implemented an 8 week parent SPACE group that began in fall 2020 and is ongoing. We also offer SPACE individually with parents, and have longstanding interest in evidence based treatment of child and adolescent anxiety.

***Limit: 20 participants. For maximum benefit from this training, we would like to limit participation to anyone who has attended a 2 day SPACE training or read Dr. Lebowitz's book Treating Childhood and Adolescent Anxiety: A Guide for Caregivers). Therefore, we respectfully request that registrants follow this guideline.

About This Workshop

To follow up on the IPA spring 2022 conference by Dr. Eli Lebowitz regarding SPACE treatment for parents of anxious children, we offer this IPA salon to provide interested providers some additional opportunity to talk about implementation of SPACE. A group of us from the Department of Psychiatry at the UIHC attended Dr. Lebowitz's 2 day training in spring 2020 and have since begun to offer 8 week SPACE parent groups, as well as conducting SPACE individually with some parents. The aim of the salon is to provide an opportunity to talk in depth about SPACE implementation. There will be an assigned reading about efficacy of SPACE presented in a parent group modality.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:
  1. Participants will demonstrate familiarity with key features of SPACE treatment, including parent accommodations, supportive statements, and identifying a target.
  2. Participants will become familiar with some of the literature on SPACE parent group efficacy.
  3. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss questions about implementation of SPACE following attendance at the IPA spring conference (Eli Lebowitz talking about SPACE)
