Abstract

This study investigates children's conceptions of happiness and wellbeing in relation to goal choice. It examines the prevalence and impact of Conditional goal setting (CGS) on levels of wellbeing and depression. Conditional goal setting describes commitment toward an important goal resulting from a conception that happiness is an end-point achieved through the attainment of this goal. Conditional goal setting has been identified as a significant factor in the development and maintenance of depression in adults. This study examines these same concepts among children.
