War in Ukraine

The Lithuanian Society for Traumatic Stress Studies together with the European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ESTSS) condemns the military attacks against Ukraine.

In a public announcement, the president of the ESTSS prof. Evaldas Kazlauskas states “ESTSS is proud to have Ukrainian professionals in our community. We admire the Ukrainian psychotrauma professionals who are working hard in serving their community affected by war. The community was formed back in 2013 exactly to support the Ukrainian population suffering from military aggression then. We believe that the current tragedy will make the Ukrainian society of psychotrauma even stronger as they have to fulfill their mission – to help their society to cope with the devastating consequences of military aggression. ESTSS supports the people of Ukraine. Over almost three decades ESTSS accumulated vast knowledge on human responses to adversities. We call for action for all of its members to support Ukraine. The ESTSS Task Force dedicated in support Ukraine will provide continuous support in the difficult times for Ukraine.“ Full ESTSS announcement: https://estss.org/the-european-society-for-traumatic…/
