Abstract

Areas of worry at the outbreak of COVID-19 were explored in a two-phased study spanning for 9 weeks. A mixed sample of boys and girls of 47 UK resident children of different ethnicities in two age groups- 8-11 years (n=21, boys n=10; girls n=11) and 12-16 years (n=26, boys n=14; girls n=12) were recruited. The content and colour of drawings made on COVID-19 by children were also analysed. Significant gender and age differences were observed after means, percentages and t-test analysis on areas of worry and depiction in the drawings. Identify, differentiate, SODE/ SUDI, creative arts and feedback (IDSCF), proposing solutions (SO) and detail (DE) and support (SU) and discussion (DI) with children is proposed for COVID-19 and worries.
