To do this, participants are asked to complete a series of kind acts and the corresponding impact on their well-being is measured. As participation in school-based interventions can vary, the aim of the current study was to assess the extent of…

Participants included 222 middle-school students (72% boys; M[subscript age] = 12.00 years, SD = 1.02) who had been diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder…
