Mentions: The intervention was offered as a voluntary course in lieu of the regular physical education class. It was given once a week, 1½ hr each time, for a period of 10 weeks, on the same weekday and at the same time for every session. All courses were given in the morning and took place in the school conference room where fruit was served. The program is manual based, with a fixed curriculum for every session (see Fact Box 2). It focuses on training in cognitive-restructuring skills, techniques for modifying irrational and negative self-statements, and ideas to reduce the risk of developing depressive symptoms.
