  1. NR not reported; a‘Qualitative meta-synthesis’ was a term used by the review authors. bNot all included studies reported findings relevant to the current RoR. cOnly one study in the Kosenko et al. review included any participants over the age of 30, and these were considered outliers as the mean age of the sample was 21 years old. Separate analyses were conducted to partially account for age, but no statistically significant differences in effect sizes were reported between teenagers and older participants
