Research and Evidence

Thrive Book Rob Kelly2
‘Thrive: Health Happiness and Success’,  is the main Thrive Programme Manual. This is the book used by anyone who wants to go through the main programme (as opposed to the ‘teenagers’ or ‘schools’ version). Anyone over the age of about 14/15 can use this book, and you can view or buy it direct from Amazon here: Amazon Link

As every component of The Thrive Programme is tested and researched thoroughly, we spend a significant amount of time both running research surveys, and studying research papers. Below you’ll find links to our two main surveys, and just some of the thousands of papers we found useful when creating the various Thrive Manuals.

Our own research projects:

Our research survey into the efficacy of The Thrive Programme for emetophobia (a fear of being sick)

Our research survey into the efficacy of The Thrive Programme for smoking cessation
