About Accreditation
Accreditation involves the demonstration of skill to run the Cool Kids Anxiety Program through a series of assessment tasks. The assessment tasks include a multiple choice quiz, a first set of case studies, a supervision session to receive specific feedback on your first set of case studies, and a second set of case studies.

Accreditation is valid for 5 years and allows you to promote yourself as a Cool Kids Accredited provider. You will receive an accreditation logo to use in your marketing and your details will be added to a searchable database of accredited providers. The database will allow the general public to find you, an accredited Cool Kids provider. The Centre for Emotional Health Macquarie University will promote the database to the public.
