On January 10, 2024, the new specialists of the program “Children and War. Teaching Recovery Techniques” program received the certificates in Kyiv. This group of newly-certified trainers studied in the capital in September 2023. Among them are residents of Kyiv, Brovary, and Zaporizhzhia. In all these cities, the newly-trained conducted “Children and War. Teaching Recovery Techniques” therapy sessions in autumn and winter. They carefully passed on the knowledge, practical exercises and experience gained during the training to the children and adults in gorups. Interestingly, all school psychologists in Brovary now have been trained within the program. The trainers from this group shared that they had been waiting for the opportunity to study for a long time, and now they have a “complete set” in the city.

23 people received “Children and War. Teaching Recovery Techniques” trainer certificates. The participants greeted each other, recalled funny situations that happened during the sessions, and thanked the organizers for the opportunity to study and work using the program. We welcome the new trainers and believe that their further work will bring many healings.

We are grateful to our partners – Kyiv City Teacher’s House, Institute of Social and Political Psychology, Podil District Organization of the Red Cross Society in Kyiv – for their cooperation.

Special thanks to the Canada-Ukraine Foundation (CUF) for the financial support of our project!

We are publishing the feedback of one of the participants, Larysa Bondarenko (Zaporizhzhia):
“Recently, in Kyiv, as part of the “Helping Hand for Ukraine” project, the friendly team of the CF “Care and Understanding” received their individual certificates of the “Children and War” trainers. We have learned and practiced many healing techniques, theories and practices for working with war trauma in groups for children and adults. The topic of war-related stress is very relevant and serious, and there is a lot of work to be done. The training was conducted by the psychologists of the “Helping Hand for Ukraine” project – Iryna Sukhova, Natalia Podolyak and Tetiana Oboyanska. Thank you for the opportunity to learn effective techniques during the war. Let’s keep working together until the Victory.”
