Green, Sarah L. (2013) An evaluation of a FRIENDS for Life programme in a mainstream secondary school and its impact on emotional distress, anxiety and coping skills. DAppEdPsy thesis, University of Nottingham.
‘FRIENDS for Life’ is a manualised, 10 week, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) based programme designed to be run in school and community settings (Barrett, 2010b). The programme has been introduced to schools within the local authority where the researcher is based via the local Targeted Mental Health in Schools (TAMHS) project. The programme is well reviewed and is recommended by the World Health Organisation for the treatment of anxiety disorders in children (World Health Organisation, 2004). Previous research has evaluated the programme when delivered in closely monitored situations with optimal implementation.
