- ACRONYM
- hypothesisThe depression prevention program ("Op Volle Kracht") will be delivered by teachers in the school curriculum in schools with adolescents from high-risk background. It is expected that adolescents who receive the interventions will show lower (increase in) depressive symptoms during the follow-up measurements, compared to the control group. Mediating effects for cognitive vulnerability to stress are hypothesized.
