Abstract

Ukrainian veterans have posttraumatic conditions and disorders of adaptability. These disorders provoke secondary psychological traumas in their wives. The adaptation requires both veterans and their wives. For improving their rehabilitation and re-adaptation technologies there is a need to teach them self- and mutual assistance in the re-trauma effects occurrence, to prevent psychological conflicts and to improve the quality of their life. The study was conducted in conjunction with psycho-correction classes and a training course for VETs and their wives for self- and mutual assistance. The School course was conducted on the voluntary basis of Chernihiv National University of Technology. The course was free of charge and was taken for 4 months – 12 sessions for 3 hours each. Тhe process of study combined individual and group work, the implementation of homework for skills improving on self-regulation of the psycho-emotional states. The effectiveness of rehabilitation technologies for veterans’ families is revealed. It has been determined that veterans and their wives have acquired self-help skills and skills in providing and receiving primary psychological assistance. The decrease in the rates of post-traumatic disorders and abnormalities of adaptability has been confirmed empirically. According to the spouses’ self-esteem, the quality of their marriage and family life has improved significantly.
