On March 10-12, 2023, the “Children and War. Teaching Recovery Techniques” training for specialists was held in Vinnytsia as part of the “Helping Hand for Ukraine” project. During three days, 22 participants from Vynnytsia, Kyiv and Khmelnytskyy were discussing the topics of psychological trauma and losses during the war, as well as learning recovery techniques and testing them “on themselves”. Learning by doing is the best way to learn. This is how you can check the effectiveness of the techniques, understand how they work and what results they give. The training was conducted by Project trainers and psychologists – Iryna Sukhova, Nataliya Podolyak and Khrystyna Kravchenko. The training was held in cooperation with the Donetsk National Vasyl Stus University. We sincerely thank our partners! A special thanks to our Canadian partner – the Canada-Ukraine Foundation (CUF) – for financial help and support in these difficult times for Ukraine!
