Abstract or Summary
  • Transitioning periods throughout an individual’s life are inevitable, and can be a traumatic experience if a person is not equipped with necessary skills to cope with them. No matter where one is from or what language they speak, every person will have a transitioning experience, whether it be negative or positive. The goal of this research is to examine the impact of elementary to middle school, and middle to high school transition periods on pre-adolescent mental health, and to explore how various factors may lead to either a more positive or negative transition experience. This thesis aims to focus on targeting strategies to ensure positive mental health development of pre-adolescents as they move through transitioning periods. It will explore the significance of pre-adolescence and how the children develop and adapt across transitioning periods, and will provide evidence for factors that may preempt negative behaviors or declines throughout the transition phases. This study provides suggestions adapted from previous research and focuses on social and mental health factors that may help pre-adolescent children to successfully cope with transitional challenges.
