The Take Action Program: Parent Handout Workbook
By: Dr Allison Waters and Dr Trisha Groth
The Take Action Parent Handout Workbook is part of the Take Action program and is to be used only in conjunction with the Take Action Practitioner Guidebook. It provides all 40 Parent handouts and work sheets from the Take Action program bound and numbered in a 44-page colour cover A4 sized book with contents page.
The Take Action program teaches children aged 4–12 years helpful ways to cope with and manage anxiety. It is an evidence-based intervention combining recent research on threat-based cognitive biases and maladaptive thinking styles in childhood anxiety disorders with the well-established principles of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). Designed for easy use by mental health and educational professionals trained in CBT, Take Action allows flexible delivery by practitioners to individuals and groups of children with anxiety. The word ACTION is a coping-oriented acronym used throughout the program. Children are encouraged to take action against their anxiety. This means children approach their fears and worries using strategies learnt during the program.
