The work's primary emphasis is to counter media trauma and provide trauma-informed education. Results. The author formulates the principles of ecological presentation of potentially traumatic information. Also, she defines the functions of health-preserving digital media education and proposes a new framework for wartime media literacy. On this basis, the program for improving the qualifications of educators in the media psychology of war is presented. Conclusions and prospects. The presentation of the main ideas, design, and content theses, which direct the further transformation of media education during the country's martial law and post-war reconstruction, is a detailed strategic vision of changes in the system of interaction of social subsystems of education and media.

The topic of trauma awareness should acquire the most significant possible cultural and educational resonance during the war and post-war period.
