The consequences of war include the often overlooked long-term, life-altering damage to children and teens, dooms another generation to living with trauma, unresolved grief and major loss. Addressing it now, with Ukrainian children already sent out of the country (these children and teens are in Romania), before the trauma and losses become embedded in young lives, has been an integral part of my work for years. I'd love to share the journey with you!"
