About The Event
There are a range of different types of anxiety experienced by children and teenagers including finding it difficult to be away from parents, being extremely shy, worrying about what others think of them, avoiding social and school activities (e.g. speaking to people, class presentations) or worrying a lot about everyday matters, potential dangers and the future. Sleep difficulties, headaches, nausea and difficulty breathing can be part of these feelings. Many children experience more than one type of anxiety.
The Cool Kids Program is a world renowned skills-based program that teaches children and their parent(s) how to better manage anxiety.
Topics covered in the program include:
- Learning about anxiety
- Learning to think realistically
- Parenting an anxious child
- Facing fears using stepladders; and
- Learning coping skills such as assertiveness or problem solving.
This program will run over 6 x 1:1 sessions and includes a workbook for both the child and parents. The child attends on their own and parents received weekly email and support.
The program is an evidenced based program written by Heidi Lyneham, Maree Abbott,Ann Wignall and Ronald Rapee at the Macquarie University Anxiety Research Clinic and produced by the Centre of Emotional Health, Macquarie University.
