Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Abstract

The need for emotional support services for children and young people has been illustrated through reports of rising levels of distress (Collishaw, Maughan, Goodman, & Pickles, 2004; Green, McGinnity, Meltzer, Ford & Goodman, 2004), the prevalence of abuse and neglect (Cawson, Wattam, Brooker, & Kelly, 2000) and increased prescription of psychopharmaceutical medication (Timimi, 2009). One of the responses to this growing need for emotional support has been the establishment of school-based counselling. Since the min-1990s, services have become more prevalent and it has been estimated that 75% of UK schools may provide individual therapeutic counselling (Jenkins & Polat, 2005). A recent meta-analysis of international studies of school based therapeutic interventions found moderate improvements in the psychological well-being of young people (Baskin eta al., 2010). Similarly, Cooper (2009) reported large reductions in psychological distress for school-based counselling as practiced in the UK.
