Designing Stimulating Environment to Alleviate Orphan Children Psychological Problems
European Journal of Environment and Public Health, 2021, 5(2), em0082, https://doi.org/10.21601/ejeph/11057
ABSTRACT: Children experience sorrow, anxiety, depression, and lack of support and care after losing their parents. Moreover, orphan children in center-based care live in institutional surroundings. Family environment deprivation and group living can manifest in psychological problems— even in the best programs. This research aims to elucidate how interior space architecture can instrumentally alleviate children’s post parental loss psychological issues. Relevant literature exploring environmental psychology was reviewed and analyzed. The researcher proposes a scheme to direct children home design to minimize children’s psychological problems, including detailed descriptions of design interventions.
