The GoZen! Mission
Everything we do at GoZen! follows the principle that emotional well-being can be cultivated through practice. Yes, we believe feeling good is a skill! We offer a suite of educational programs and tools designed to give parents and practitioners what they need to arm kids with essential life skills to not only manage anxiety, but to live with deeper engagement and purpose.
GoZen! uses an innovative approach centered on animated videos that make it fun to learn. We teach everything from the science behind why we worry to specific techniques for overcoming anxiety and discovering one’s strengths. And it’s all as easy as pressing play.
GoZen! is nothing short of great. In simple language, the animated characters explain what anxiety is, how the brain works in response to anxiety, and ways to change your thinking so that you are in charge of your thoughts and feelings. From kids with normal worries and fears to those who suffer from anxiety, this program works.”
