Purpose of the CSI Research Study


The Caregiver Support Intervention (CSI) has been developed to improve the wellbeing of children (age 0 to 12) who have experienced war and displacement. The CSI focuses on the role of parents (and other caregivers of children) in improving the wellbeing of their children. Our aims are to strengthen the wellbeing of parents and increase their knowledge and skill related to positive parenting.


The CSI is a group intervention with nine weekly sessions, each lasting two hours. Separate groups are held with women and men, with 10-12 participants in each group.  The intervention includes several techniques for stress management and relaxation, as well as sessions focused on helping parents strengthen their positive influence on their children’s development and wellbeing. All sessions are delivered by trained, non-specialist providers (i.e. people without a specialist degree or qualification in the mental health or health field).

We are currently implementing an updated version of the CSI in six groups in North of Lebanon (T5 region), after having recently revised it based on expert consultation. Next steps include developing and adapting measures to evaluate the impact of the CSI on parents on children, and conducting a pilot randomized control study of the CSI using those measures.


We are seeking fresh graduate interns to help initiate their research experience while working on basic research tasks with a team of researchers. They will need to be available for meetings and supervision in Beirut.
