Take Action is an Australian designed program that uses Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) to help children confidently manage anxiety provoking situations! 

Take Action uses the following acronym to help teach CBT strategies:

A - Be AWARE - of feelings and body signals

C - Keep CALM - strategies for keeping calm and reducing anxiety

T - THINK Strong Thoughts - thinking positively and confidently

I - Get INTO Action - gradually confront anxiety provoking situations

O- Use my OPTIONS - additional strategies to manage anxiety

N - NEVER Stop Taking Action - plan for anxiety provoking times to help in the future

Take Action is an 8 week program recommended for children aged 4-12 years old . Sessions can be one-on-one or in small groups. The program is designed for both child and parent to attend each session. Both receive a workbook that is completed over the course of the program. 

'Parent involvement is considered important to help consolidate learning and reinforce children's efforts to confront their fears between sessions.'

NDIS funding may be used for this program!
