Project Summary:
This study will evaluate the effectiveness of a group-based cognitive behavioural therapy-based indicative prevention program for children with elevated anxiety levels. The results of this study will provide insights into the effectiveness of the Coping Cat program and test its underlying mechanisms.

Fist results show a clear effect of the Coping Cat as indicative prevention program in reducing anxiety levels. Further analysis focus on the weekly measurements and hope to pinpoint working mechanisms of this CBT program.
