TAO Online Services

What is TAO?

  • TAO is a suite of online tools to help students learn and practice new skills every day to reduce and overcome mild to moderate problems with anxiety and depression. It allows individuals to work on these concerns when and where it is most convenient for them.
  • Calming Your Worry is a seven-week, interactive, web-based program that provides assistance to help students reduce and overcome anxiety.
  • Let Go and Be Well, Improving Your Mood, and Leave Your Blues Behind are interactive, web-based programs that provide assistance for students in overcoming symptoms of depression.
  • In addition, a series of TAO modules are designed to assist individuals with Interpersonal Relationships and Communication.
  • TAO is based on well researched and highly effective strategies for treating symptoms of anxiety and depression.
  • Participants watch videos, complete exercises, and can meet with a counselor through video conferencing (or in-person) for consultation.
  • Weekly exercises require approximately 45-90 minutes for completion. Daily homework can be completed on a smart phone, tablet, or computer.
  • Finally, TAO Self-Help allows students to utilize the same proven online tools mentioned above without the aid of a professional counselor. For example, you can learn stress management, mindfulness skills, problem-solving and relationship skills, as well as strategies to avoid dwelling on concerns and develop more helpful thinking patterns.

  • For videoconferencing, students who have access to a computer with webcam, and who reside in Washington State.
