“Resilient Ukraine” experts delivered the trainings on mental health during the crisis
The educational module on psychosocial support, crisis management and communications gathered about 120 first line practitioners, psychologists and social workers from Zakarpattia and Ivano-Frankivsk oblasts. The training was designed as peer-to-peer learning and was held in a hybrid format.
During the training sessions in June 2022, Estonian specialists provided their expertise on restorative justice, conflict management, means to treat anxiety and overcome trauma from sexual violence.
Ukrainian participants learnt from the experience of Kaisa Üprus-Tali, head of the Social and Health Care Board of Tallinn City Municipality; Margarita Ingel, conflict management expert; Dr. Jelena Riis, clinical psychologist, and Roman Krylov, expert of the Estonian Social Insurance Board.
Colleagues from the Israel Trauma Coalition also contributed to the educational module. They provided practical tips on how to deal with children traumatized by warfare, and how to provide self-care and prevent burnout.
The course on mental health during the crisis consisted of three educational modules (April-June 2022) and was held in cooperation with the Transcarpathian Institute of Postgraduate Pedagogical Education (Uzhhorod, Ukraine).
