The “Children and War: Teaching Recovery Techniques” therapy course in Slovyansk in the special general boarding school for visually challenged children (Donetsk region) has been completed. The sessions in a group of 10 teenagers were conducted within the framework of the “Helping Hand for Ukraine” project, implemented by “HOPE worldwide Ukraine” Charity Foundation in cooperation with “HOPE worldwide Canada”.
The students of the Donbas State Pedagogical University worked with children. These students were trained in October last year, and they are currently conducting therapy courses for parents and children living in an area of the military conflict in Eastern Ukraine.
The participants learned to overcome obsessive memories and nightmares, practiced psychological self-regulation, relaxation skills and spoke about their fears. As the trainers pointed out, during the classes, the self-esteem of children and their trust in each other increased significantly, and a positive vision of their own future emerged.
