The Brave Program

The University of Queensland, Australia

‘BRAVE’ is a free online treatment program which is based on cognitive behavioural therapy and designed for young people aged 8 to 17 years experiencing anxiety. There is also a supporting program for the young person’s parents.

There are two separate programs; one for children aged 8-12 years, and another for teenagers aged 12-17 years.

The features of this program:

  • An audio track with guided exercises for deep breathing, muscle relaxation, guided imagery and other anxiety reduction techniques.
  • An interactive ‘BRAVE ladder’, a tool for planning and managing stepped exposure to sources of anxiety.

The program is free but the user is required to register before commencement and only available within Australia.
