Galuh Kumalasari* and Frastiqa Fahrany
Covid-19 can attack anyone, including children whose phenomena often ignore health protocols. The right approach to providing education and forming behavior that adheres to health protocols can be done by applying play therapy. This study aims to determine the effect of Cognitive Behavior Play Therapy (CBPT) on children's behavior in preventing Covid-19. The design of this study was a quasi-experimental with a pretest–posttest approach with a control group. This study involved 14 children (aged 3-4,5 years) in the Pakisaji sub-district as the treatment group and 10 children as the control group. The treatment group was given CBPT therapy. Measurement of health protocol compliance behavior using a questionnaire instrument. The results of this study showed that in both the treatment and control groups there was a significant difference in the behavioral value of complying with the health protocol before and after being given treatment which was analyzed using a paired sample t test. In the treatment group, p = 0.003 (<0.05) and in the control group, p-value = 0.010 (<0.05). The results of the analysis of the differences between the treatment group and the control group were carried out using an independent sample t test and the results obtained were p = 0.254 (> 0.05). These results indicate that there is no significant difference between pre and post covid 19 prevention behavior between the treatment and control groups. The conclusion in this study proves that CBPT has not been declared effective enough to prevent covid 19 behavior in children because many things affect it, especially the role model and the role of parents.[Full Text Article]
