The Russian war against Ukraine has a direct psychological impact on those who are in the immediate war zone, affected by bombing or who have become refugees. But it also damages the mental state of those who are not directly affected by war action. And the war also impacts those who work with traumatized individuals. The panel discusses the consequences of traumatization for Ukrainian society and for scholars who research the consequences of war. And it discusses strategies to cope with trauma under war time conditions.
