On November 21, supervision was held for trainers of the program “Children and War. Teaching Recovering Techniques” Victoria Tikhonova and Irina Bernatskaya, who conduct group classes for 19 children 10-12 years old in school number 5 of the city of Severodonetsk in the Luhansk region. Psychologists of the project “Helping Hand for Ukraine” Irina and Alexey Sukhovs came from Kiev to support specialists and children, because working with trauma is a rather laborious and difficult process. The lesson talked about fears and what children are so often afraid of. For example, about poor grades in school and the fear of confessing to parents that he received a “deuce”. But the worst thing was to talk about the war, because it was so close, and many came into contact with it personally. To become the “boss of their fears”, to stop being afraid and learn to manage anxiety, the guys practiced the exercise “Ladder of Fear”. Well, and after fruitful work we rested together, played and drank tea with sweets – all this is also an important and integral part of the therapeutic process!
