Stepped care treatment for childhood anxiety: Improving efficiency of open access, online Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
Childhood anxiety is common and problematic for many young Australians. Although we have effective treatments, very few young people receive help. We propose new research to translate our knowledge about evidence-based practice into real world solutions that children want to use, that are accessible, are low cost and ultimately, provide the right support to the right children. This study will examine the effectiveness of a stepped-care model for delivering evidence-based treatment for child anxiety via the internet.
