How Long Will It Take?

The in-person group course consists of 4 x 2-hour sessions with one session delivered each week over 4 weeks.

Our online course is self-paced with one session delivered weekly over 4 weeks. We recommend you spend one to two hours per week to complete each session.

Weekly homework will be required to practice what is learned in both the group and online sessions. The online course also holds a weekly online forum with Q&As.

Who Is The Course For?

The course is for parents who struggle to manage their child’s anxiety-related behaviours and feelings, as well as other challenging behaviours.

Our course is currently only available for 5-12 year olds.

We will be developing the online course for 1-4 year olds and 13-17 year olds in the near future and encourage you to register your interest by email.
