thesisposted on 2023-05-27, 14:33 authored by Taaffe, ME
The \In The Driving Seat\" (ITDS) program is a coping self-regulation program designed to increase psychologically protective factors in children and adolescents. This review highlights the theoretical and research based foundations of the development and pilot testing of the ITDS program. The prevalence of mental health issues for adolescents is discussed with a brief review of current treatment focused interventions. Furthermore preventative factors associated with resilience and coping are examined including a consideration of both biological and environmental factors. The benefits of a universal approach to program delivery are highlighted and a summary of currently available school based preventative programs in Australia is provided. Finally the rationale for pilot testing this unique coping and resilience training program with school aged children is presented."
