Computer-Assisted CBT for Child Anxiety: The Coping Cat CD-ROM
Khanna, Muniya S.; Kendall, Philip C.
Cognitive and Behavioral Practice, v15 n2 p159-165 May 2008
Empirical data support the efficacy of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for child anxiety, but there is need and merit in the development and evaluation of cost-effective and transportable CBT approaches. Relatedly, a widely endorsed goal is the dissemination of evidence-based treatments from research clinics to community settings. Computer-based and computer-assisted treatment programs may provide a cost-effective and efficient way to increase the accessibility of CBT treatment strategies to anxious youth. In this research update, we introduce the Coping Cat CD-ROM, a computer-assisted CBT for the treatment of anxiety disorders in youth ages 7 to 13, in its initial phases of development and evaluation. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
