Virtual Support for Russian/Ukraine Conflict
March 11, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
The Russian/Ukraine armed conflict is difficult for everyone. In these difficult times, we ask that you remain open to our shared common humanity. Situations such as the armed conflict between Russia and the Ukraine can trigger a lot of reactions – fear, anger, outrage, hopelessness. Sometimes people reach for simple solutions to feel less powerless. Seeking a release, we may vent these feelings, label and/or blame these situations on others. Although this provides temporary relief it typically escalates the tension and difficulties.
It has come to our attention that Russian members of our community have experienced anger, hurtful comments, and backlash for these world events. This is not ok.
We are offering a free virtual “safe space” for those in the Russian Community in Switzerland who are experiencing difficulties on March 11 at 15:00.
Lyla Schwartz and Patricia Vriesendorp two trauma therapists are available for professional support. Please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join. A zoom link will be sent to you just before the meeting. If you would like to provide a small donation for this space that is welcome but not needed.
