Author: Millay Vann, with thanks to Dr Kerry Young, Dr Sameena Akbar, Dr Eileen Walsh

Affiliation: Woodfield Trauma Service, Central and North West London (CNWL) NHS. The Woodfield Trauma service is an evidence based psychological therapy service for refugees who have experienced trauma. It is part of the publicly funded National Health Service (NHS) in England in the UK.

This training was commissioned by the EABCT’s Humanitarian Crises response working group, as it is recognised that many individuals who have experienced a humanitarian crises will be displaced and seeing therapists who speak a different language from their own. It delivers best practice information and examples for you to adapt in your country/setting.

It will be helpful to watch this session alongside Kerry Young’s training session on ‘Trauma focused treatments for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in refugees and asylum seekers‘ which challenges all of us to overcome our own worries and concerns about our abilities to work therapeutically with refugees and asylum seekers – You can do it, and please do!!

EABCT statement in support of Ukraine

The European Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies protests against the violation of international law by the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, a sovereign nation, by Russian troops. As mental health professionals we know about the impact of war on the mental health and well-being of individuals and society in the present and for generations to come. This should be prevented by the cessation of hostilities and the restoration of peace.

The Ukrainian and Russian CBT Associations are members of EABCT and we are hearing first hand the devastating impact this war is having on the people of Ukraine and also of the Russian people’s participation in anti-war protests within Russia.

Please hear from our Ukranian representative President of the Ukrainian Association of Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy (UACBT), Valentyna Parobii: 5 key points about war in Ukraine

The European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ESTSS) has provided recommendations about what mental health professionals can do to act against war in Ukraine.
