To Receive the Most Benefits from the Teen Online Program
In order to receive the most benefits from the COPE 7-Session Teen Online program, it’s extremely important that your teen completes all seven sessions.
Each session of the program focuses on a new concept and provides different activities that build upon the earlier lessons. The programs positive results are based upon the teen successfully completing all seven sessions over a seven week time frame, practicing the skills, and completing the assignments.
Each session should take only about 20-30 minutes of your teen’s time each week and should be completed in one sitting. It’s very important that you encourage your teen to not only complete all of the sessions, but to avoid other distractions (such as television, radio, cell phone, texting, friends, etc.) while viewing and interacting with the program videos. This will help him or her absorb and remember the concepts and skills being taught. It’s very important that your teen practice the skills being taught in the program.
The program interface includes a page (Print Answers tab) that summarizes each week’s questions/answers and a button (Download Pdf) that allows you or your teen to download and save or print the program questions/answers. Your teen can use these pages to help him or her recall the concepts taught each week or to demonstrate to you their completion of each session.
Don’t forget that you and your teen have access to the program videos for an entire year. So once your teen completes all seven sessions, he or she can go back at any time during that year and re-view the videos to remind them of the concepts and skills taught in the program.
If you would like to recognize your child's completion of the program, we also have Certificates of Completion available that can be printed out and used for this purpose.
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.
