Project Z is a cognitive behavioural therapy program for generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) in children 8 to 12 years old.

GAD is very common in children and adolescents. It causes a lot of suffering and can interfere with school, family and social functioning.

From our clinical experience and the literature on child development, visual cues for understanding theoretical concepts are sometimes complex. Studies also show that we remember 10% of what we hear, 20% of what we read and 80% of what we see and do. This tool is timely considering the high incidence of excessive worry and GAD, but also the fact that GAD is still relatively unknown and rarely treated in childhood. We're not talking here of stage fright before an exam or of a circumscribed fear, but rather of a generalized tendency to worry that reflects a fear of uncertainty, novelty or change that disturbs a child in several spheres of their functioning.

Zak et Zoé

Zak and Zoe, the central characters of Project Z, offer young people ways to understand and tame their anxiety. The sheets for parents and manuals for therapists and children, help young people better manage excessive worries and anxiety so that they can meet the many challenges of daily life and develop to their full potential.
