Quirky Kid’s BaseCamp® is Here
Developed by Clinical Psychologist, Dr Kathryn Berry, and the Quirky Kid team, BaseCamp® is an innovative anxiety program for children aged 7 to 12 years.
BaseCamp® draws on decades of experience, combining a sound theoretical cognitive-behavioral approach with effective, engaging and child-centred activities.
Based in a fictional Australian National Park, Basecamp® takes children on a journey where they explore themed settings, team up with a support crew of experienced guides and interact with park animals, all intended to help them tackle the challenges of managing and overcoming anxiety.
The program provides parents, participants, and facilitators with a concise and engaging set of materials to help children and their families build a repertoire of anxiety management skills and to support the development of essential social and emotional learning (SEL) skills.
BaseCamp® comes with a range of resources to make it easy for facilitators to deliver the program. All participants receive the Basecamp® pack. The pack contains a workbook which includes a range of psycho-educational resources to share the science behind behaviour with participants; direct instructional anxiety management techniques (including Cognitive Restructuring, Graded Exposure and Problem Solving); and activities designed to sustain and maintain treatment gains (eg. fieldwork tasks, performance feedback, rewards, home notes, etc.).
The BaseCamp® program, including all the activities and information, is sequenced, explicit, focused and both evidence-informed and aligned to various elements of the Australian Curriculum’s social and personal capabilities. The result is a practical and efficient anxiety management resource that is beautiful to look at, highly engaging and easy to use.
Basecamp® is available as a Term program at Quirky Kid or for use at your school and clinic after accreditation. Find out more and register.
