The main topic of the Third Symposium is the transgenerational transmission of trauma and recovery from trauma. We are proud to present the outcome of a number of studies related to the mental health and resources of Ukrainian psychotherapists as specialists at the forefront of social and mental changes. The results of this study will be presented by speakers Vladimir Pogorely, in the context of a sample of those Psychotherapists who left Ukraine, and Professor Kira Sedykh, on the sample of those who remained in Ukraine. Finally, Olena Dobrodnyak, Head of the System and Family Therapy Section of the Ukrainian Umbrella Association of Psychotherapy will summarize the overall findings of the report.

The Ukrainian Umbrella Association of Psychotherapists is thankful for the opportunity for dialogue, support and mutual co-operation with EAP and Czech NAO at this time. We cordially invite European Psychotherapists to join with Ukrainian Psychotherapists in this Symposium, as it is vital for our Ukrainian colleagues that they could have the opportunity to be connected with, and in dialogue with, colleagues from other European countries as they face their lives in the present and prepare for their future.

We warmly invite you to attend our Third Symposium.
