About the Course:
This course will describe the results of a study regarding the use of a 5-week, web-based intervention program, Youth COMPASS, which is based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), with ninth-grade adolescents. Specifically, this study looked at the effectiveness of the Youth COMPASS program as an intervention for alleviating stress and enhancing coping skills among adolescents. This course will describe the background and reasoning for this study, provide an overview of ACT and the Youth COMPASS program, discuss the results of this study, and will cover the practical implications of the results and recommendations for future research and programming.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Reducing Stress and Enhancing Academic Buoyancy Among Adolescents Using a Brief Web-based Program Based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy created by Anne Puolakanaho, PhD,et al. in 2019.
