Special Edition: Supporting Russian and Ukrainian Clients - presented by Polina Fedotenko and facilitated by Candice Hamilton-Miller.

 

Description: The recent events in Ukraine have left most wondering how this is possible in the 21st century, a war between neighbouring countries. Not surprisingly, the people that are the most stunned about the situation are Ukrainians and Russians themselves. On February 23, 2022, the day before the war erupted, the Ukrainians and Russians alike would think that you were telling them a terrible joke, yet on the 24th, it became a reality.

Ukrainians and Russians alike are stunned by the situation in their home countries and struggle to make sense of it. There is hardly any family in both countries that do not have relatives on the other side, and the history of the two nations is intertwined. There was good, there was bad, and now there is ugly.

No wonder when they come to your therapy room, they fill it with the pain of betrayal, disbelief, guilt, shame, and above all, anger!

In this workshop, you will learn the history of the emotional relationship the two nations have, the painful stereotypes they create for each other and possible barriers to counselling they might have. Knowing where they are coming from will help you guide them to where they need to go next. We will also have time to discuss specific challenges that you may be dealing with.
