Frequently Asked Questions

What do I get when I order Child Anxiety Tales and Camp Cope-A-Lot?

Once you have completed registration and payment through our Order page for the Child Anxiety Tales and/or Camp Cope-A-Lot programs, you will receive (1) an email receipt and (2) an email that includes your username and password for logging into the program.
You will have access from the date of purchase using your username and password to access the full program for the length of your subscription. The programs automatically limit to 3 devices.

What age range is the program designed for?

The Child Anxiety Tales program is designed to be used by parents. The examples and strategies are relevant for all ages of those struggling with anxiety, but most specifically towards children and adolescents ages 7-17.
The Camp Cope-A-Lot program is designed for kids (7-13) to use with the support of a “coach” who could be a school or community based mental health provider. A parent/guardian can also serve as a “coach” however, we have not tested if the effectiveness is the same/as good as with a mental health provider in a research trial as yet.

How long does it take to go through Child Anxiety Tales?

We recommend going through 1 module every few days. There are 10 modules in total. The first few are more informational and second half more instructional. You may prefer to go through it all at once and then go back through the second half again as you try to implement some of the strategies with your child.

How long does it take to go through Camp Cope-A-Lot?

We recommend going through 1 module every week. There are 12 modules in total. The first few are more informational, and second half requires the coach to support practice.

Can my child go through the program with me?

The Child Anxiety Tales program is designed for parents, and might be a little dense for kids. That said, there may be parts that you would like to share with them to help the dialogue. We recommend going through the modules and then selecting the parts you’d like to share that you think would be appropriate for your child.

The Camp Cope-A-Lot program is designed for kids, so the content is appropriate and meant for them to learn from directly. The coaching sessions 6-12 require support to make opportunities for planning and practice.

What will I need to be able to run the program?

You will need to register and pay for access to the Child Anxiety Tales program. You can find an “Order” button at the top right hand side of our home page. The program is designed as an online program, so you will need an internet connection with good speed to get the best experience. For those who have variable speed and access to the internet, we recommend downloading the modules onto your computer to be able to view without an internet connection (but you will need to be connected to the internet to be able to login and download the modules).

Can I share my login information with other parents?

If you’re a parent, you can use your login as often as you would like. In other words, if you have two children, you only need to purchase the program one time and can use it for both. If there is another parent or guardian, you may share your login. But, keep in mind that the same login will be limited to 3 devices.

What about large groups, schools, and clinics?

If you are a professional (a teacher, counselor, therapist, social worker, other professional), you can purchase the program to share content with your student or clients. Your license does not allow for sharing login information with other professionals, parents, or students. If that is of interest to your colleagues or clients, we ask them to contact Dr. Muniya Khanna at to find out about group sales and Purchase Orders. We ask you to keep your login information to yourself. Thanks for respecting the licensing rules; it helps us to be able to continue to develop and keep offering the best-in-class evidence-based content to all families who may benefit from them.
