On the Way

On the way! I’m often asked how I found and decided the use of CHAANGE for myself. It seemed that I’d been severely anxious since childhood. None of the solutions offered me over the years had worked, despite my strong desire to be free of this impediment to a full and satisfying life. One day I received an announcement simply stating “New Hope and Help- for Severe Anxiety, Agoraphobia. Write for Free Information”. Unconvinced as I was, I thought I would see what they were offering in North Carolina. Little did I know the best part of 30 years ago that my life was about to change radically. The uncomplicated response I received led to a whole new existence for me, including the eventual elimination of my severe anxiety condition.

What was it that put me on the path offered by CHAANGE? What was it that even caused me to feel some excitement and hope? It was something the Charlotte, NC people said in their description of how they chose the healing elements they were sure to include in their treatment program. They carefully chose those parts which had clearly served well the early subjects using these parts in the testing phase. What was included in the treatment program was what had shown itself to actually have served anxious subjects, real people. If an element included did not serve a significant number of subjects in the testing phase, it was not included in the final product, The CHAANGE Program. This made an enormous difference to me and my enthusiasm grew as did my success with the Program. Of course, when Dolores and I saw CHAANGE serve me so well, we wanted to use the Program ourselves professionally. We arranged to spend time at CHAANGE Headquarters to receive appropriate training to teach others, and returned to California where we were able to conduct a CHAANGE based practice to serve the public as well as build a network of CHAANGE trained and Affiliated professionals. As you may know, things went so well for us over the next two years that we were asked to take the leadership of the company, and if we wanted, we could offer a bid on it’s ownership as well. We did both. Enough of history for now. John

What is LifeSkills?

The CHAANGE© Family of Therapeutic Tools has developed an effective way to treat children suffering from severe anxiety. The LifeSkills© program was designed through the joint efforts of professionals from education, social work, family therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. It provides age appropriate materials for children from ages 6-15 years, and is designed for application by the parent(s), the CHAANGE© therapist, or both. We have found that older teens also can benefit from the CHAANGE program for adults.

Phase 1: Education assistance – New information that de-myths anxiety.
Phase 2: Cognitive assistance – Identifying and changing fearful, negative self talk.
Phase 3: Family systems assistance – Working with the family system and seeing the child’s symptoms in context.
Phase 4: Behavioral assistance – Teaching and encouraging new ways of behaving.

LifeSkills teaches new information that explains anxiety, helps the child form more positive attitudes and beliefs, instructs the family in ways to be constructive, and assists in the initiation and practice of new ways of behaving in order to overcome feared situations.

Help is Here!


With CHAANGE, we are your partner as you move from fear to freedom.
