Abstract:

This study investigated the effects of Iraqi aggression on the feeling and thought processes of Kuwaiti children. An Arabic version of the Impact of Event Scale (Horowhitz et al., 1979) was administered to 465 school children (195 boys and 270 girls) between 10 and 16 years of age. The results indicate that a subjective stress syndrome still persists in the thought and feeling processes of Kuwaiti children although in much lower degree than the Lebanese children as found by Al-Adsani (1990). Girls showed more stress reactions than boys.
