LIAM

Let’s Introduce Anxiety Management (LIAM) is a training and intervention package based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). The LIAM package was developed by NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and it is being offered in various health boards across Scotland. Within the Greater Glasgow and Clyde (GG&C) area, this is delivered by the NHS Early Intervention Training in Psychological Skills (EI-TIPS) team. 

LIAM is designed to help children and young people aged between 8-18 years who are experiencing milder difficulties with anxiety. It supports them to learn more about anxiety, including how anxiety is linked with our thoughts, physical sensations and our actions. It also helps children and young people find ways to cope with feelings of anxiety.

Children and young people (and parents/carers, where appropriate) meet with a LIAM worker for around 8 sessions to work through structured LIAM sessions together. Each LIAM session has a session plan to follow, a workbook to complete with the child/young person and they are also asked to complete tasks in between sessions. Materials and plans are available to deliver LIAM in one-to-one and group sessions.
