Abstract

Increased knowledge, attitudes, skills and health behaviors can be done through health education, namely counseling. Counseling with the Emotional Demonstration (Emo Demo) method in the application of handwashing with soap (CTPS) is one things that needs to be applied to make people aware of the importance of CTPS in suppressing infectious diseases such as diarrhea and ARI on Barrang Lompo Island. This study aims to see the differences in the level of knowledge and attitudes of children about the importance of CTPS before and after counseling, to find out and analyze the influence of counseling on Emo Demo methods on knowledge and attitudes about CTPS on Barrang Lompo island, Makassar. This study used a quasi-experimental design method with One Group Pretest Postest Design. Sampling of respondents was done by the total sampling method with 45 respondents at the Barrang Lompo Inpres Elementary School. The results showed a difference in the level of knowledge before and after the intervention (P value = 0.002). There were differences in attitudes before and after the intervention (P value = 0.002). The intervention conducted had a significant influence on the level of knowledge and attitudes of the respondents. Based on the results of the study, it is suggested that the school and parents play a role in shaping health behavior by getting children to wash their hands with soap at important times.
