The "In The Driving Seat" (ITDS) program is a coping self-regulation program designed
to increase psychologically protective factors in children and adolescents. This review
highlights the theoretical and research based foundations of the development and pilot
testing of the ITDS program. The prevalence of mental health issues for adolescents is
discussed with a brief review of current treatment focused interventions. Furthermore,
preventative factors associated with resilience and coping are examined, including a
consideration of both biological and environmental factors. The benefits of a universal
approach to program delivery are highlighted and a summary of currently available
school based preventative programs in Australia is provided. Finally, the rationale for
pilot testing this unique coping and resilience training program with school aged
children is presented.
