Anxiety is the most common psychiatric disorder in children
Anxiety is the most common psychiatric disorder in children according to the 2015 Children’s Mental Health Report from the Child Mind® Institute. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is known to be the best treatment for children and teenager anxiety. While there are many online CBT programs available for adults, children and teenagers are not receiving any assistance to cope with their emotions, worries and issues. In fact, 80% of kids with diagnosable anxiety disorder face their fears, alone.
Families cannot attend face-to-face CBT
The truth is some families cannot attend traditional face-to-face therapy. Sadly, it is also very common for parents (and children themselves) to avoid their kids’ anxiety. “It is just a phase” or “he is just shy” are probably some of the most common phrases we hear parents say. Similarly, kids will tell us and their parents: “I’m fine, I don’t need to see a therapist”, “This is just how I am” (among many other typical comebacks).
There has to be a better way. This is when BRAVE comes into the picture.
