First Aid of the Soul· We are so happy to partner with the Всеукраїнська Арттерапевтична асоціаціяTh
Thank you Наталі Тимченко for the opportunity to participate in the Global Webinar: Creating a Restorative Space for Care-Givers involved in the War in Ukraine, organized by our partners First Aid of the Soul: Psychosocial Support for Ukraine and International Association for Creative Arts in Education and Therapy
Talking about media-arttherapy and the possibilities of using plasticine animation in trauma work, I recalled how almost a year ago, our friend art therapist from Japan Itoku Tsukamoto wrote that it is impossible to feel what is happening to us in Ukraine if you do not see our drawings... News about Ukraine, which are crowded TV channels around the world, does not give such an opportunity... That's why I so wanted to show animated films created by our refugee children from Kharkiv, Nikopol, Chernihiv... For the whole international art therapy community to feel how we live, how we believe in Victory and overcome difficulties. Glad to have been able to do this!
And I was overwhelmed with gratitude to our foreign colleagues when I heard about their help to our refugees!
