Cool Kids Program

10 Week Group Program for Kids

We are excited to announce that registrations are now open for the Cool Kids Program at neurocare in Frenchs Forest

At neurocare we are passionate about supporting children and adolescents to overcome challenges they may be facing with anxiety. In addition to offering 1:1 psychotherapy sessions we are also an accredited provider of The Cool Kids Anxiety Program (nicknamed ‘Chilled’ for teens.)  We are excited to let you know that registrations are now open for term 2, 3 and 4.

About the program

Cool Kids is an evidence based group program that has been running at Macquarie University for nearly 30 years.  Cool Kids is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), with a focus on teaching practical skills and strategies for helping children overcome anxious thoughts and helping them face their fears.  The program has undergone continual scientific evaluation and development to include the latest understanding of anxiety and its treatment.

The benefits

Current results indicate that most young people who complete the Cool Kids programs show significant improvement. Following treatment, there are marked increases in school attendance, academic achievement, confidence, number of friends and involvement in extracurricular activities and decreases in worry, shyness, fear and family distress.

Children who complete the Cool Kids program show positive mental health outcomes and improved quality of life with reduced rates of anxiety. Approximately 60-75% of children who complete Cool Kids are disorder free after treatment.

How it works

The Cool Kids program is a structured 10 session program run over a minimum of 10 weeks held in our Frenchs Forest clinic.   There is a maximum of 6 per group and a minimum of 2. Programs are run by school term and we now have places open for term 2, 3 and 4.

Topics covered within the Cool Kids Anxiety Program include:

  • Learning about feelings and anxiety
  • Learning to think more realistically
  • Parenting an anxious child
  • Fighting fear by facing fear (stepladders)
  • Learning other coping skills such as building social confidence or learning to solve problems
