To tackle the challenges of the project and move beyond the state-of-the-art, ECoWeB uniquely integrates three multi- disciplinary approaches:

  • Theoretical framework: An established theoretical model of normal emotional functioning (Emotional Competence Process) will systematically be used, to our knowledge for the first time, to guide the identification and targeting of mechanisms strongly implicated in well-being and psychopathology in young people;
  • Personalized medicine approach: Systematic assessment of personal Emotional Competence (EC) profiles will be used to identify risk factors and select targeted interventions to promote well-being;
  • Web administration: Mobile application delivery will be used to achieve scalability, accessibility, and acceptability in young people.
