Background and Purpose: Anxiety disorder in children is one of the most important causes of maladjustment in children. The present study was designed for evaluating the effectiveness of the Coping Cat treatment program on reducing symptoms of anxiety disorder in elementary school children.
Method: This is semi-experimental, pre and post-test design with control group. Study population consisted of 9-11 age male and female children with anxiety disorders. Utilizing Multidimensional Anxiety Scale for Children (March and et al, 1997), and through a purposeful sampling method, 32 children from Tehran province were recruited and randomly assigned to 16 children in each group. The Coping Cat intervention administered for the experiment group, while there was no intervention for the control group.
