Global Enagement - Ukraine

We Stand with Ukraine

GPS is partnering with the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center - PPSC Refugee Support Project assisting Ukraine.  Elena Lewis an MSW Intern from the University of Michigan is working with us this year and has been providing support to aid workers and refugees from Ukraine located around the world. 

In collaboration with her daughter Olivia Lewis, MFT trainee, Elena is hosting a virtual interactive presentation on the cultural nuances of psychotherapy with Ukranian and Russian-speaking clients. The goals of this event are to highlight cultural blindspots clinicians often face when working with Eastern Europeans, to increase understanding of client responses to traditional psychotherapy, and to offer tangible practices that take into consideration the history and mentality of this population. Mental health providers, trauma specialists, translators and anyone interested in the topic  are invited to attend and learn as part of an effort to support those most affected during the continual full scale invasion of Ukraine.
