Online program | By: This Way Up
The Worry Course is an online program developed by the team at THIS WAY UP from UNSW at St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney. It is designed to lessen the symptoms of generalised anxiety disorder and worry (GAD).
This 6-lesson course is based on an effective psychological treatment for generalised anxiety and worry called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (or CBT). It is designed to teach you proven strategies for tackling your symptoms and show you how to work with your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours so you can make a positive change in how you feel. It may be especially helpful to you if you’ve been previously diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder (or GAD) and haven’t had CBT in the past.
This course has been evaluated in a Randomised Controlled Trial. We have also completed large studies of course effectiveness in the real world setting.
