Summary

Cluster-Randomized Clinical trial, which includes the development and activation of an intervention program among young adolescents and their parents. Study hypothesis is that the intervention program will yield improvement in adolescents whose parents participated in the program, in comparison with the adolescents whose parents weren't involved in the intervention. Results will be measured using the study questionnaire, to be filled out by the participants before, after, and three months after the completion of the program. The questionnaire will include validated questionnaires with good psychometric qualities. The study protocol was approved by Tel Hai College institutional review board. Parents of all participants, in the intervention and in the control group, received information about the program and the study and were asked to provide informed consent.

Description

Early adolescence (10-13 years) is characterized by hormonal changes and accelerated physiological growth. Significant risk factors for the physical and mental health of children and adolescents include, among others, harmful physical activity, self-esteem and low self-esteem, and negative body image.

"Milli - a special shield for daily resilience" is a preventive intervention program. The main goal of the program is to raise adolescents' self-confidence and prevent negative self-image and body image as well as develop media literacy. In this study, the researchers will focus on the "Young Millie" program, designed for ages 10-12, fifth and sixth grades, and its core is the development of self-care. To increase the impact of the program on adolescents, the researchers developed a program that will be delivered to parents via a their adolescent children, as the 'agents of change'. Adloescents in the parent-component group will be given assignments to complete together with their parents at home, in coherence with the subject discussed in the weekly session of the school-based program.

The study will first evaluate the influence of parents on the program, and then evaluate the difference in adolescent outcomes from the program with or without this supplement.

Results will be measured using the study questionnaire, to be filled out by the adolescents before, after, and three months after the completion of the program. The questionnaire will include validated questionnaires with good psychometric qualities. Parents will fill out a satisfaction questionnaire before and after the program. The study protocol was approved by Tel Hai College institutional review board. Parents of all participants, in the intervention and in the control group, received information about the program and the study and were asked to provide informed consent.
