Target of the present study is the development of a stress prevention program for adolescents to be applied in school settings. It seems to be important to establish an appropriate scope of coping strategies early in life, because stress experiences are already relevant in childhood and adolescence. On the basis of a previously conducted demand analysis, a program was developed with a basic module focusing on a problem solving approach. The basic module can be expanded by additional program modules related to cognitive reconstruction, seeking for social support, and relaxation and time management. 461 adolescents (grades 8 and 9) from 18 school classes participated at a program evaluation combining the basic module (problem solving) with one of the three additional modules. The three training conditions were contrasted to a control group without intervention (339 adolescents from 14 school classes). The results showed significant knowledge improvements as well as changes of the assessment of stress evoking situations and of the coping behaviour. The effects were stable over an interval of at least two months.
