In these times of continuous upheaval, the psychological impact of conflict has become a pressing issue. The Israel-Hamas war and humanitarian crisis in Palestine has, like many other crises around the world, taken a significant toll on the mental well-being of civilians caught in the crossfire.
It’s during these dark times that the role of therapy can transcend the confines of the individual and become a form of collective resistance. It’s not just about introspective healing anymore — it’s about facing the harsh realities of our world and finding the mental fortitude to cope with them.
This means grappling with the emotions stirred up by events such as the current humanitarian crisis — not just in private, but as a community.
How Does the Free Crisis Response Therapy Work?
Therapists on It’s Complicated pledge to provide at least four sessions free of charge, with the duration and number of sessions tailored to the unique circumstances of each individual. Whether you are seeking therapeutic support in the wake of a current war, natural disaster, or any other such catastrophe, these therapists are here to offer support. If you wish, please refer to our article here to read about how online therapy works.
Acknowledging the profound psychological distress caused by crises like the Israel-Hamas war, It’s Complicated has launched an initiative that is more relevant than ever: Crisis Response Therapists.
This program is a testament to the dedication of therapists who are offering their services for free to those directly impacted by large-scale crises. The counselling available through this platform is meant to be a psychological first aid, helping individuals navigate the turbulent emotional waters of war and displacement.
