The Russian Revival Fund has been working since 1998 to train local mental health professionals in psychotherapeutic approaches which were banned during the Soviet regime. The Project is an official programme of the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP) and the first five Russian graduates became full IAAP members in 2004. Three more have just passed their final exams. This exciting news brings the Project nearer its goal of building a self-sufficient group of Russian psychotherapists who will become the trainers of the future. Their therapeutic skills are urgently needed in the continuing social and economic insecurity of Russian life, which exacts a harsh toll on the emotional and mental well being of individuals, families and children.
More and more professionals are becoming interested in what the Project offers. But to train more people, we need more money. We are enormously grateful to the distinguished musicians and actors who have given their skills to make our previous three sell-out concerts such a huge success, and who are doing the same for ‘To Russia with Love’. Please match their generosity – come and enjoy the evening.
