Abstract: With this report, War Child Holland publishes the findings of a pilot study conducted in Northern Uganda in 2009. In this study, a child-friendly monitoring and evaluation toolkit was used to measure the effectiveness of War Child’s creative life skills method, I DEAL, for groups of children and young people in conflict-affected areas. I DEAL provides theme-based group sessions to improve children and young people’s psychosocial well-being through training in life skills, using a combination of creative and participatory techniques such as role-play, drawing, games and group discussions. The intervention consists of six I DEAL modules that address psychosocial themes such as identity, dealing with emotions, peer relations, relationships with adults, conflict and peace, and the future. Through I DEAL, War Child seeks to enhance the resilience of children and young people and improve their coping skills to better ‘deal’ with the challenges of every day life.
