The ICAN (Conquer Anxiety and Nervousness) program is based on best science and focused on adults 18+ years of age. Adults learn life-skills to overcome anxiety and to cope with major life stressors. The ICAN program is an extension of our proven anxiety programs for children and youth that have shown to overcome anxiety and depression symptoms, leading to improved daily performance, social and family relationships and increased confidence.
If you are struggling with anxiety, the ICAN program will help you learn skills to control anxiety. Your telephone coach will support you through the program that can take about 3-4 months with weekly telephone contact. We will provide you with written skill-based information, skill-demonstration media (videos and audios) that will help you find out what skills work best for you in specific situations. You will track your anxiety in an Anxiety Tracker, use the skills to face goals and learn hope to control anxiety. The program is free of charge to you and your coach calls will be booked at convenient times.
Your coach will help you match the skills to overcome your main anxieties. Some additional highlights of the program include tips on: the importance of self-care for your mental well-being, being your own advocate; balancing finances; effective problem-solving around major stressors using your skills to control anxiety and much more helpful information.
