MOVEMENT AS PREVENTION
On 2 December 2021, we received a grant from the Health Programme of the EEA Grants 2014 - 2021 for our project Promoting mental resilience and mental health through the prevention of sedentary behaviour and the healthy use of digital media in pre-school children, which is numbered ZD-MGS1-064.
We cooperate on this project with our Norwegian partner: the Institutt for psykologi, Norges teknisk-naturvitenskapelige universitet.
The Department of Psychology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway, is a research organisation that applies scientific knowledge to prevention programmes for school-age children, with a focus on the development of social competence and mental health in children. The Department of Psychology includes the The Human Development Research Centre, hereafter referred to as the Centre, which will be a closer partner in the project. The head of the centre, Prof. Lars Wichstrøm, is the contact person for our project. The Centre conducts research on physical activity, diet, obesity, screen time and internet use among children and adolescents. The research activities also focus on the development of social competence and predictors of mental health in children and adolescents. We will collaborate on evaluating the outcomes of key project activities and methods mapping the effects of workshops on parental competencies in preventing internet and digital technology overuse, sedentary behaviour and physical inactivity. The partnership is important both for the project implementation in order to enrich the professional activities of the project and for mutual learning from the professional practice of similar activities implemented in Norway.
