On Wednesday, June 10, 2015, the team of seven psychologists went to Korostyshiv (Zhytomyrska oblast) within the pilot stage of the “Helping Hand for Ukraine” project to conduct the fourth therapy sessions for children, traumatized by war in Eastern Ukraine. The sessions have been conducted in the temporary camp for IDPs (internally displaced persons) in Korostyshiv. Psychologists worked with three groups of children: the youngest ones (6-8 years old), second group of kids aged 9-11 years and a group of teenagers.
This time therapy sessions focused of how to cope with nightmares and fears caused by loud noises similar to shooting and heavy artillery, people shouting. It is important and as well inspiring to see how children and psychologists are bonding and building their relations on trust. The children talk eagerly about their life in the camp. They also start sharing about traumatic events they have experienced.
After the sessions, our supervisor and professional trainer Lyubov Loriashvili, provided consultation and methodic support on spot for the team of psychologists. On Saturday, the psychologists will go to Korostyshiv again to conduct the next therapy session for children and parents. In total, they plan to hold six therapy sessions and one sum-up session for each group of children and parents during the pilot stage of the project.
