As of this week we have admitted two Ukrainian students who were civilians in the regions affected by combat.
The first student, a 26-year old female, has stated that the war has transitioned her research interests to include stress, resilience, posttraumatic stress disorder and posttraumatic growth. She has shared that our “program could help me with mastering professional skills and bringing best practices to Ukraine.”
The second student, a 26-year old male, traveling to the US with his wife, would like to extend his current research and practice on child development. He states that “theories in Ukraine mostly are connected with science of the post-Soviet space,” and he would benefit from the science-based psychology taught in the USA and at NAU’s Department of Psychological Sciences.
