From the 1st November 2012, clients may also eligible for 10 sessions of group therapy per calendar year. At Take Action Psychology, we run a group-based CBT program that helps children to Take Action and overcome their anxiety problems. Over 450 children (and their parents) have been treated through this program with excellent results.
Children (and their parents) are taught CBT strategies in groups of between 6 and 10 participants. Each parent and child receives a detailed treatment manual. Medicare rebates may be available with a referral from a GP, private Paediatrician or Psychiatrist. It is important to discuss the Group Therapy being offered with your referring doctor, as the referral needs to state group therapy as a 'possible or suggested therapy'.
Groups run for children aged between 4-7 years and 8-12 years. We are continuously taking referrals for these groups, so please contact Take Action Psychology on 0400 554 792 for more information.
