During July, psychologists and volunteers, who were trained in “Children and War. Teaching Recovery Techniques” methodology within the framework of the “Helping Hand for Ukraine” project, have continued to conduct therapy sessions for children and their parents in Pereyaslav, Kropyvnytskyi, Chornomorsk, Lviv and other cities of Ukraine.

“Every day, while Ukrainian soldiers defend the freedom and independence of our country, our trainers keep helping families with war trauma,” says Iryna Sukhova, a chief psychologist and the head of the “Helping Hand for Ukraine” project. – Psychologists, social workers , teachers and other specialists from all over Ukraine work hard to balance the psycho-emotional state of children and their parents. They teach them self-regulation techniques, help to cope with difficult memories and thoughts, unbearable nightmares and fears. In times of war, such support is extremely important and necessary, because in such a way, our volunteers contribute to the preservation of the mental health of Ukrainians. The immediate results are shown already after the first therapy session – children and parents mention the improvement in their emotional state, and get additional motivation to continue attending the sessions”.
