Our Classification
Remarks
Times of assessment outcome measures: T1 Pre-intervention T2 Post-intervention (week 5) T3 Follow-up (week 10) Prior to receiving the GAP manual, participants in the Waiting list group completed T2 data for the purpose of analysis between the Intervention Group and the Waiting list group.
Distribution
1:  n = 26
0:  n = 29
Operationalization
Participants were randomly assigned to

1 GAP INTERVENTION Participants were sent the Goal Setting and Planning (GAP) manual to work through individually over 5 weeks. The focus is on developing positive goals to improve well-being. Part 1 of the manual introduces the concepts of well-being, goals and plans. Part 2 consists of identifying obstacles to achieving goals and solutions to overcoming them. Part 3 explains how to maintain progress by continuing to use the techniques in GAP.

0 WAITING LIST. Participants received the GAP manual 5 weeks later, when the intevention group had completed the manual.
