Online anxiety treatment programs at Open Access College

Anxiety Treatment Program

Are your fears and worries stopping you from:

  • Doing what you want to do?
  • Disrupting your sleeping/eating patterns?
  • Making or keeping friends?
  • Doing work (school or paid work)?

If you answered yes to any of the above, you might benefit from an anxiety treatment program. OAC are offering students a chance to opt in to an online treatment program tailored to suit their needs.

These programs aim to teach young people and their parent/carers how to better manage anxiety, by teaching clear and practical skills. Topics covered by the program include:

  • How unhelpful thoughts make us anxious
  • Thought challenging and thinking realistically
  • Assertiveness and problem-solving
  • Fighting fear by gradually facing fear

Courses are supported/facilitated by an accredited psychologist, and will include an initial assessment to look at what course you need.

Who:

When:

Commences term 2, 2019, weekly online sessions (various times)
