Evidence-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in Schools

Through a series of brief, easy-to-follow sessions, complete with skills-building activities, the evidence-based COPE Programs convey that there is hope for change, and that both depression and anxiety are treatable. COPE recognizes that we can't control trigger events, but we can control our responses to them. Our programs teach students how to use CBT-based learning skills to cope with anxiety, stress and depression.

Our manual-based programs are delivered by school teachers and other school professionals to students using standardized, age-focused student manuals. Program packages start at $385/instructor and include online instructor training (available 24/7) and five hard-copy student manuals. Programs are designed to be “taught-from-the book”, enabling a wide range of school personnel to deliver the programs.

Our CBT-based online program is delivered directly to students without the need for an instructor using an interactive custom web-based platform accessible from any computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone. The online program is only $79/student and is accessible 24/7.

Cost Effective Investment and Fast Implementation

With program instructor training completely online (available 24/7) which can be completed in about 3 hours, and program student manuals as low as $5 each (print-your-own option), our manual-based programs are a very cost-effective way to provide evidence- and CBT-based coping skills to your students.
