“COOL KIDS” – group treatment for children with Anxiety

‘Cool Kids’ is a well researched anxiety treatment program aimed at children aged between 7-12 years suffering with anxiety. It was developed through Macquarie University in the 1990s and is a structured, skills-based program that teaches children and their parents how to better manage anxiety (both children and parents participate).

The program has undergone continual scientific evaluation and development and is based on the latest theoretical work in understanding anxiety and its treatment.
