Crescer a Brincar is a 4-year longitudinal programme developed in Portugal. It is implemented in a classroom context, within the school curriculum and is intended to promote the development of social and emotional skills, psychological adjustment and academic performance, preventing or reducing emotional and behavioural problems in primary school children. The teachers are the main agents of intervention and are invited to work with the class, manuals adapted to each school level, addressing variables that accompany the level of development (Discipline, Self-control; Emotional, Cognitive and Behavioural Differentiation; Self-esteem, Self-concept; Social Skills, Assertiveness; Positive Emotions; Decision-making; Negative Emotions Management). Thanks to the results achieved it is part of the EDDRA Database, as one of the best School Prevention programmes in Europe and in 2019 it won the Sustainable Health Award.
