Abstract

The paper presents four possible ways to devise interventions aimed at enhancing thinking abilities in children. The assumptions underlying each perspective are highlighted by making reference to training programs implemented to foster problem-solving and creativity skills. The critical role of self-awareness and self-regulation is stressed as the key element which makes intervention effective. Implications for designing and managing interventions are discussed.
