To capture the impact of the Beirut explosion on children's psychosocial wellbeing and highlight perceived trends, experiences, priorities and coping mechanisms of children and parents in the aftermath of the event, Plan International Lebanon (PIL) and Right to Play (RTP) conducted this joint qualitative assessment of children’s behaviour during PSS sessions and interviews with parents. Data was collected one month after the explosion; hence parents were able to report on the immediate impact of the explosion on children as well as the after-effect of the explosion on daily stressors, children’s noticed behaviour and wellbeing.
