Cool Kids – Taking Control

Published 13th December, 2018

The Centre for Emotional Health at Macquarie University are currently recruiting for the ‘Cool Kids – Taking Control’ National Trial.

‘Cool Kids – Taking Control’ is an online self-help program that is designed to help children (7-11 years) who have been targets of bullying and who also have high levels of anxiety. It is based on the well-known Cool Kids anxiety program developed at Macquarie University in Sydney. The program is designed to teach children skills to manage bullying and anxiety with the intent to help them better manage these experiences in social situations. These lessons will be delivered via the internet with parental guidance. The child’s progress through the program will be supported by a member of the research team at the Centre for Emotional Health.

The efficacy of Cool Kids – Taking Control in reducing peer victimisation is currently being investigated by a team at Macquarie University.
