Original Course For Psychologists

Greetings. My name is Tatiana Stanislavskaya, and I am the author of the training course for psychologists “War Won’t Write It Off”. It is based on my knowledge and years of experience as a trauma therapist as well as on case studies of victims exposed to missile attacks in Kyiv.

Indeed, the branches of war, clinical, and transgenerational psychology are gaining particular relevance right now. But once the war is over, they will matter even more.

You can take my course or seek knowledge from other sources. But trust me, you will definitely need it. These are the times.

More about me.

You will appreciate “War Won’t Write It Off. 3.0” if:

you’ve spent a lot of time and money learning to become a professional psychologist, but now you lack new knowledge on war, clinical, and transgenerational psychology

You’ve got clients requesting something that you don’t know how to cope with.

You feel trapped in a professional vacuum: few colleagues understand how to work in the current context.

You have been affected by the war and all your previous knowledge seems to have lost its significance, while you need to keep practicing.

You are confused about concepts and terms. For example, you confuse “PTSD” with “combat mental trauma” or “combat stress”.

You have no time or significant financial resources to get another university degree.

You lack professional support in dealing with difficult client cases.

Before the war you loved your profession very much, but now you are confused and feel helpless.

You are one of those experts who is constantly learning and growing professionally.

Feedback from participants of the first and the second run of “War Won’t Write It Off”

The first run took place in winter 2022/23 – in December, January and February. The training took place during massive missile attacks, in the midst of blackouts, disrupted communications, issues with water supply and heating in Ukraine.

The second run lasted for three months in summer 2023 and coincided with Ukrainian armed forces counter-offense, blow-up of Nova Kakhovka hydropower plant and escalation of nuclear threat. Missile shellings and drone attacks hadn’t stopped for even a day.  

But we still managed to learn, communicate and analyze client cases in intervision groups. And to work, to keep working with our Ukrainian fellow citizens on the frontlines, under occupation and in the rear under bombings.

Against all odds.
