Psychological treatment recommendations for clinicians

Helping the helpers ‚Äď expert guided supervision and intervision

ESTSS is aware that helping the people affected by the current situation is difficult.
A lot of professionals will be helping in a situation in which they themselves are ‚Äúvictims‚ÄĚ.
Living in areas affected by the war, having fled or being personal involved in shocking events.
Furthermore, the problems of patients will be more complex. Possible multiple traumatizing events, combined with acute stress and insecurities.

To help those helping Ukrainians ESTSS offers professionals working with people from Ukraine the possibility of supervision and intervision with colleagues and an ESTSS specialist.

These sessions will be held on:

  • ¬†May 3 from 11.00 to 12.00 Ukrainian time
  • ¬†May 17 from 11.00 to 12.00 Ukrainian time
  • ¬†May 31 from 11.00 to 12.00 Ukrainian time
