The instruments included: personal experiences during post election violence, psychological stability scale, and post traumatic experience psychological scale.

There was also a high level of PTSD among the pupils who experienced violence but there were no significant gender differences in the level of PTSD among the affected pupils.It is recommended that there should be a provision for parent-teacher communication; availability of school psychologists and counselors; in school setting.
