Abstract: Currently, many pressures to combat the child-soldier phenomenon are being exercised by International Organizations to put an end to the use of minors for military purposes, although a growing number of child soldiers are being observed in many countries thousands of children under the age of 18 are forced to become involved in these conflicts and to wage war, thus the Democratic Republic of Congo is not exempt from this global scourge. The literature demonstrates that these traumatic practices experienced in military life have detrimental short- and long-term consequences for the mental as well as the physical health of these children, certainly our diagnostic interviews and our direct observation of thirty-seven children released from Armed Forces and Armed Groups in a Transit and Orientation Center in Lubumbashi Province in Haut-Katanga in the Democratic Republic of the Congo have reported significant psychological changes in these children. These huge behavioral disturbances such as aggression, temper tantrums, insomnia, and the spirit of vegance, suicide attempt, and despair. . . require psychological intervention in favor of these children to improve their behavior. to act and behave in order to prepare for their peaceful reintegration into working and family life. The positive change in the behavior of these children through the manipulation of behavioral therapy is the main focus of this study.
