Abstract

This study contains the results of the protesters’ self-organized psychological support service experience during Euromaidan from December 2013 to February 2014. This community, despite organizational difficulties, lack of experience in crisis intervention, imperfect competition in professional community, has offered and used in practice a fairly efficient system of psychological first support and short-focuses crisis counseling. Methodology: 4 focus groups and 2 interviews from Kyiv, Lviv and Dnipropetrovsk. Participants - 32 psychologists and psychiatrists, volunteers of Maidan Psychological Service. Study categories: meta-analysis of protesters’ revealed deprived needs and psychological states; methods and techniques of crisis intervention work with them, the features of the service internal organization and interaction with other voluntary groups. It was found that the cognitive component of deprived needs was a motive to take part in the protest, but still affective one was prevailed (expressed such feelings as resentment, anger, discontent, confusion, paranoia aggression). Psychological support was carried out using techniques of psycho-eduсation, psychohygiene, self-regulation, body-oriented techniques, art-therapy and relaxation, container of negative emotions through active listening and finding resources. Setting of crisis intervention took place outdoors, in tents, in places of temporary accommodation, which was significantly different from clinical one. At the beginning protesters were reluctant to use psychological support proposed by services specialists and services have become popular later.
