Note: This study was set up to examine three topics. (1) The effect of the World Child Kosovo creative workshop intervention on the psychosocial well-being of the children involved is assessed. (2) The intervention itself is being evaluated by the children involved, as well as by their parents and teachers. (3) We examined the psychosocial well-being of 204 children in two villages in Western Kosovo, six years after the conflict has ended. This study was conducted in Kosovo by War Child Holland, in cooperation with World Child Kosovo. The overall objective of World Child is to improve psychosocial well-being of children and youth in Kosovo. In order to reach this goal, World Child organizes creative workshop cycles (apart from other activities that are not further described here). In the World Child creative workshops, means like art, music, drama, movement and sports activities are being used. The creative workshops took place in a school in Western Kosovo. The experimental group consisted of 90 children who were involved in the 8-week creative workshop intervention. Four workshop groups participated in this study, consisting of 18 to 30 boys and girls, in the ages of 9 to 15. Two groups were 4th graders, the other two groups were 5th graders. The control group consisted of 114 children who were not involved in any intervention.
