"In true dialogue, both sides are willing to change" (Thich Nhat Hanh)
The armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine between the Ukrainian government and Russia-backed armed groups entered its sixth year. The conflict has turned 1.7 million people into internally displaced persons. In years of the conflict Ukrainian society has gone through a very difficult and traumatic period, a period first characterized by apathy and cynicism. As a result of file economic decline and associated problems noted above, social tensions continue to rise and the potential for other societal conflict is high. Thus the issue of social reconciliation has great value and importance. Social reconciliation interventions are therefore specifically designed to foster intergroup understanding, strengthen nonviolent conflict resolution mechanisms, and heal the wounds of war. Such reconciliation process may include individual counseling that can help one deal with - inner conflict perception in the society. Such method widely used in inter-individual psychology techniques.
Current interdisciplinary conference aims to bring together scholars and activists with diverse backgrounds and research interests to discuss modes of cooperation. The workshop aims to strengthen ties between scholars and practicing researchers and activists from different research areas.
The main goals of the conference are to establish cross-sector collaboration, in order to exchange scientific and practical experience in conflict resolution. We believe that this will help to develop a professional dialogue a unified strategy for providing psychological counseling and rehabilitation assistance to victims and civilians.
