|Anxiety and Agoraphobia Treatment Center - Anxiety Disorder Treatments||AATC provides help for all anxiety disorders including; obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, social phobia, simple phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. When indicated, treatment may include spouses and and other family members in addition to individual sessions. Because many anxiety disorders originate during childhood, a separate program for the treatment of children was established in 1991. Finally, group treatment is often available for selected anxiety problems.
AATC is dedicated to trying to help those suffering from anxiety not only through therapy, but through education and community service. Our staff members regularly present our work at national scientific conferences and local presentations in an effort to train and educate other clinicians and the lay public. Because of our commitment to the community of those suffering from anxiety, we offer two free support groups, one for obsessive compulsive disorder and the other for panic disorder. For those who may not be able to afford therapy, lower cost therapy is available through our interns. Our interns are doctoral students in clinical psychology who are trained and supervised by AATC staff. They have come from Temple University, University of Pennsylvania, Bryn Mawr and La Salle.||Montgomery||The Anxiety and Agoraphobia Treatment Center - Montgomery; Bala Cynwyd||Anxiety and Agoraphobia Treatment Center|
