We have developed the Arabic Wellbeing Course based on our standard Wellbeing Course, which has now been completed by more than 2,000 Australian adults. We have already conducted one trial of the Arabic Wellbeing Course and the feedback has been very positive - participants reported the Course and the skills covered helped them to manage stress, anxiety, worry, sadness and low mood. We know that many people in the Arabic speaking community experience these difficulties and symptoms. But, we also know that few have access to and are unsure about accessing treatment. Over the next few years we hope to get feedback and learn how best to support people of Arabic speaking background to manage their symptoms.

What does the Course involve?

  • 5 online lessons that provide information and teach practical skills for managing symptoms.
  • Do It Yourself (DIY) Guides to help you practice those skills.
  • Lots of Additional Resources and Case Stories from others.
  • Brief weekly contact with a clinician via email and telephone (depending on the trial).

The Arabic Wellbeing Course is delivered over 8 weeks and is designed to provide you with practical information and practical, proven, skills for managing symptoms of different types of anxiety, worry, low mood and depression. The Course aims to provide the information and skills that you would normally receive from a Clinical Psychologist. We hope it will help people to gain better control over their symptoms, improve their confidence and get back to living a full and satisfying life.

We also hope to learn a lot about how we best work with people of an Arabic speaking background and to get feedback from the Arabic speaking community about the helpfulness of the Course. Our goal is to create a Course that is as helpful as possible, which we can then make widely available to the community.

Who is the Course Suitable For?

  • Adults aged 18 and older.
  • Residents of Australia.
  • With an Arabic ancestry - that is, if you, your parents or grandparents were born in an Arabic-speaking country.
  • With symptoms of stress, anxiety, low mood and depression.
  • With depression, social anxiety, panic attacks and generalised worry.
  • Who want to learn information and skills to improve the quality of their lives and emotional wellbeing.
  • Who have at least 4 hours per week to spend working on the Course and practicing the skills taught during the Course.

Unfortunately, we cannot include people who are currently suicidal or who do not have access to the Internet. In order to participate in the Course you must have a Basic English Reading Ability Level (i.e., able to read a local English-language newspaper). We also cannot accept applications from anyone who will be accessing regular Cognitive Behavioural Therapy treatment for anxiety or depression at the same time as doing the Arabic Wellbeing Course.
