This PhD research program aims to significantly improve outcomes for children (6 - 12 years) and adolescents (13 – 18 years) with anxiety disorders by enabling clinicians to predict the efficacy of treatment approaches for individual children, to ensure the right care is delivered to the right child at the right time. Although cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is an effective treatment for most young people with anxiety disorders, we cannot predict for whom it will be effective, nor do we yet know what modifications are needed to extend its efficacy to all. This research program will develop and utilise large clinical data sets to ‘predict’ the likely success, of existing treatment protocols and to develop and refine a clinical tool that might aid clinicians and parents in treatment choice, particularly within stepped care models of care.


This scholarship is available to eligible candidates to undertake a direct entry 3-year PhD program.
