Evaluation of the Kids Write Network (KWN) intervention with children of severely ill parents: a qualitative and quantitative pilot study
Adolescence represents a unique developmental window of the life cycle to adopt healthy behaviours that will support psychosocial adjustment and well-being during adolescence and adulthood (World Health Organization, 2001). This research project seeks to evaluate the Kids Write Network (KWN) intervention, which is directed at adolescents at risk for psychosocial problems, with the aim of enhancing their self-expression, self-esteem, and self-confidence by guiding them to use their creativity to develop, write, and illustrate a narrative intended to be published as a book. The research project aims to evaluate the process and outcome of the KWN intervention using a mix-methods design to inform the development of a future randomized controlled trial (RCT).
