On March 9-13, within the framework of the “Helping Hand to Ukraine” project, an online training was held under the program “Children and War. Teaching Recovering Techniques”. It was attended by 40 psychologists and volunteers from different parts of Ukraine: Kyiv, Lviv, Khmelnitsky, Chernihiv, Lutsk, Mykolayiv, Chernivtsi, Cherkasy, Berdyansk, etc. The training was conducted by psychologists and certified specialists of the program “Children and War” Irina Sukhova (Kyiv) , Natalia Podolyak (Kyiv), Tatyana Shkurskaya-Kuzmenko (Pereyaslav-Khmelnitsky). The zoom format was used for training for the first time, but during this difficult time it was the only opportunity for learning. Sometimes the participants were forced to take breaks to hide in shelters during the air raid, and then they returned to the screens of their gadgets again. Also, during online meetings, some had interruptions in the Internet and electricity (there was no light.) But despite all the obstacles, the training was effective, each participant is motivated to provide psychological assistance to children and adults who have suffered from the war and are in places where refugees and in “hot spots” of Ukraine. The “Helping Hand to Ukraine” project plans to continue its work. Now more than 200 people are waiting in line for training. “I’m proud of the Ukrainian people who rallied around the trouble,” says Irina Sukhova. “Together we will overcome everything!”

The project expresses its gratitude for the cooperation of Pereyaslav-Khmelnitsky State Pedagogical University named after Grigory Skovoroda and Charity Center “Mercy Center” (Drohobych, Lviv region).
