The goal of the session was to help children cope with the post-traumatic effects of COVID-19. During these sessions, the facilitator discussed the definition of stress, the different types of stress, its causes and treatment options. Participants discussed the challenges they have faced throughout the pandemic, as well as its impact on their lives and societal changes. In addition, the facilitator emphasized the need for self-care.
