Study Summary

The investigator aims to conduct a pilot randomized controlled trial to test the feasibility of two symptom management programs for college-age individuals with recent concussions and anxiety, TOR-C 1 and TOR-C 2. The investigator will assess the feasibility of recruitment procedures (screening, eligibility, and enrollment) and data collection as well as the feasibility, credibility, and acceptability of the programs (adherence, retention, fidelity, and satisfaction), following prespecified benchmarks. Both programs will be delivered virtually (Zoom).
