Most children will, at some point in their development, exhibit separation anxiety.  What causes separation anxiety? What is normal? When does separation anxiety become a problem? What can parents, carers, teachers do to advance the child through this difficult stage? Separation anxiety in adolescents will also be discussed with particular emphasis on cause and treatment options.
