Psychological support of children from Ukraine.

Hi, my name is Svitlana Putiata. I arrived in the UK with my children because of the war in Ukraine. I started project of psuchological support for children and teenagers and I want to say Thank everyone who supported the start of the project on psychological support for children and teenagers. It is so important to be heard and seen. Emotional overload and challenges of change are stop development. Thanks to your contributions, 21 children receive psychological support and participate in the project. Сhildren receive support in the group, learn to overcome difficult emotional states and support each other. We have more requests, not everyone joined who wanted, also people need individual work. So our foundation is very very timely and important. We need to work harder so that children can develop ecologically and prospectively. If possible, spread the word about our initiative among your acquaintances and friends. Happy youth is our good future. I know that on the one hand, the Ukrainians who have been lucky enough to flee from the war are experiencing significant trauma from leaving their homes, lives and loved ones. In particular, the children, some of whom have limited knowledge of the English language, are greatly affected by the level of change and uncertainty as they find themselves in new schools, missing their fathers, family and friends while trying to make new friends at the same time.

I believe I could make a huge difference in supporting these families and children through programs scientifically proven to help.

I have been a crisis psychologist, neuropsychologist and member of the Mindfulness Association of Ukraine for many years and i have dedicated hours of my life I learning to provide support and psychological help for people including children. Now I’m in the process of getting international accreditation for mindfulness teaching and practicing trauma-focus therapy. I confirmed my degree and have RQF Level 7 Master’s degree.

І know that we have a lot of low-intensive tools. For example, we have a proof program for the prevention protector develop PTSD for Children “Children and war foundation”

The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program is the most recognized and established mindfulness course, taught all over the world, and scientifically proven to help people cope better with stress, depression and anxiety.

So I would like some funds to establish programs that improve children's lives after traumas and disasters through the “Children and war foundation”, and provide a program building resilience for families through MBSR.
