Attending school can be a wonderful time in a teens life to increase knowledge, improve social skills, discover new talents, develop new friendships and begin building the foundation for a life-long career. But pressures from peers, parents, and teachers to succeed can sometimes become overwhelming.

Goals of getting good grades, excelling in sports, and fitting into defined social groups can all have great benefits to a teen's future and personal identity. But sometimes limitations such as inexperience with effectively managing time, physical disadvantages, or events outside of school make it more difficult to achieve these goals, increasing negative emotions.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-based techniques have also proven to be very effective in helping teens manage emotions and their negative effects. Our online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)-based 7-session educational program teaches teens techniques that can be used to help ease anxiety, fear, stress, and other emotions associated with school-related stresses.

The COPE 7-Session Online Program can be accessed from PCs, Macs, tablets and smart phones, and each session can be repeated as many times as desired during the year-long subscription.

This program was designed to be delivered over a 7-week period of time.

* Based on $79/year for the full seven-session program. Sessions cannot be purchased individually. The program is accessible for one year from the date of purchase.


The online, self-administered 7-session program is a self-help, cognitive-behavioral skills-building intervention educational program only and is not meant to diagnose or provide treatment for a particular disease or illness. The goal of this educational program is to teach children and teens how to recognize negative thought patterns, and provide cognitive behavioral skills and techniques that can be useful in modifying negative thinking.

Please note that this is a "single-user" class, so each individual user must register for and purchase a separate program.

In addition, since this is an "interactive" class requiring students to input information, each online user will require a different email address and password as a "unique identifier" in order to maintain confidentiality.

Note: At this time, the online course is only available to people who reside in the U.S., are 13-years of age and older, and cannot be accessed outside of the U.S.
