There is a metaphor in our project: when we learn techniques for overcoming post-traumatic stress, we kind of fill our imaginary “backpack” with various techniques and tools. One tool can help you overcome the fear of military equipment, the other – to relax from stress and anxiety, and the third one will help to establish a healthy sleep without nightmares.
A complete backpack with psychological self-help techniques for every taste and life occasion – this is exactly what the therapy group participants take with them after completing the “Children and War. Teaching Recovery Techniques” course.
And, we also have a pleasant tradition to give our participants a real backpack with “tools” for art and leisure. For example, paints, air plasticine, albums and sketchbooks, stickers, puzzles, markers, and toys. All of these are also the “tools” to continue working on your memories and fears and just for a great mood.
