In the village of Chmyrovka, Starobelsky district, Lugansk region, in February-March 2020, classes were held on “Children and War. Teaching Recovering Techniques” for 3rd and 4th grade students. Coaches Valentina Pronka and Lilia Bobyleva held two groups for the guys in February and two groups in March. The first meeting of one of the March groups was attended by supervision Irina Sukhova, a Kiev psychologist at the “Helping Hand for Ukraine” project, who came to support the coaches in their hard work. Irina said that the children listened with interest to the trainers and drafted the rules of the group, which will protect them throughout all seven classes. Each child expressed a desire to be heard, requested that his opinion be respected and not ridiculed, and his stories kept secret. Many spoke of the possibility of openly expressing their feelings, even if they are so unsightly, like fear and pain. Children especially liked the dating games. They filled out the “Family Album”, went hunting and chose a bee, which in its emotions and mood is most similar to them.
