Influences of Comprehensive Psychological Intervention on the Psychological Behavior Problems and Learning Adaptability of Students at Age of 6-12 Years Old


Background: The age of 6-12 yr show different degrees of learning adaptability problems. We aimed to explore the influence of comprehensive psychological intervention on the psychological behavior problems and learning adaptability of students at age of 6-12 yr old.

Method: In March 2022, 768 students were selected from two primary schools in Harbin of China, and divided into control and observation groups. The changes in the scores of Achenbach Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) for parent use and Mental Health Rate Scale for Pupil (MHRSP), and self-cognitive ability and learning adaptability level before and after the intervention were compared between the two groups.

Results: After the intervention, the discipline violation, hostility, compulsion, immaturity, evil communication, schizoid personality, and physical symptom scores in the observation group (boys) were reduced compared with those before the intervention. In comparison with the situation before the intervention, the cruelty, aggression, immaturity, depression and withdrawal, physical symptom, anxiety, and compulsion scores in the observation group (girls) were reduced, and the CBCL scores were improved better than those in the control group (P<0.05). In comparison with the situation before the intervention, the scores of MHRSP, self-cognitive ability, and learning adaptability score and level in the observation group were elevated after the intervention, and the above scores were improved obviously to a greater extent than those in the control group (P<0.05).

Conclusion: Comprehensive psychological intervention can effectively improve the psychological behavior problems of children at the age of 6-12 yr, and enhance their self-cognitive ability and learning adaptability.
