What is BRAVE?
BRAVE is an interactive, online and evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) program for the prevention of anxiety for children and teenagers, with complementary programs for their parents. Young people and their parents can complete the program either on their own or with the guidance of an ‘online therapist’, who assists them where necessary.
Online therapy works! BRAVE was developed based on strong empirical research over 12 years. The BRAVE Team has completed a series of studies examining the use of the BRAVE program with children and teenagers of various ages, all showing extremely promising and overwhelming positive results.
