Brave Online Program
BRAVE-ONLINE is designed for children and adolescents experiencing Separation Anxiety Disorder, Social Phobia, Specific Phobia and Generalised Anxiety Disorder. Parent sessions are designed to accompany the material covered in the child and teen program. BRAVE-ONLINE is delivered entirely over the Internet and is designed to use guidance of an online therapist but can also be done unsupported.
This online cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) program helps young people to learn new ways to manage their anxiety and fears. Young people complete one session per week over 10 weeks. It can help with social worries, anxiety about separating from loved ones, fears of specific objects or situations (e.g. dogs, needles, storms, darkness), worries about friendships, school performance or other everyday worries.
BRAVE also has designated sessions for parents of children and teenagers respectively. Parents can better understand and manage their child’s anxiety.
With over 22,000 children and parents using BRAVE-ONLINE, we are confident this approach used by yourself and your child will make a huge difference in their anxiety levels.
Feared situations should not be avoided
Anxiety is an important problem that many children and teenagers suffer from. We often think our child is “going through a phase” and that there is nothing to worry about. Children themselves tend to avoid their negative feelings. However, it is imperative to be able to read the signs because:
- Around 8-10% of children and adolescents are affected by anxiety.
- Anxiety can be extremely debilitating and cause significant problems in a person’s emotional, social and educational functioning.
- Children and adolescents with anxiety may worry about all sorts of things: meeting new people, being away from home, performing in front of people or even things going on in the world.
- Other children and teenagers worry about very specific situations (such as getting injections or flying on planes) and others just seem to be worrying about something all the time.
With BRAVE, children, teenagers and their parents have access to a proven online cognitive-behaviour therapy in the comfort of their own homes at their leisure.
“Anxiety is treatable, but 80% of kids with a diagnosable anxiety disorder are not getting treatment, according to the 2015 Child Mind Institute Children’s Mental Health Report”

Who else can BRAVE help?
Although BRAVE was not designed specifically for treating Panic Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, young people with these problems may find some of the program strategies useful. They may, however, require additional treatment approaches that are designed specifically for these issues. Please contact us directly for more information firstname.lastname@example.org.
