During the pandemic, ICDP has continued to be implemented in Russia, however this did not take place in person but in a distance format. We conducted ICDP training for the students specializing in Crisis Psychology at the Minin University, in Nizhny Novgorod, via the Zoom platform. And we were also able to use this platform to train groups of parents as well.
During the pandemic, we created and published a table game called Empathy, which helps to develop the emotional intelligence of children, parents, as well as specialists. The game is based on the model of emotional intelligence as an ability developed by D. Mayer, P. Salovey, D. Caruso and the model of emotions by R. Plutchik.
During the autumn of 2021, new face-to-face meetings with specialists and parent groups were started.
We have also prepared a new brochure with the main principles of the ICDP programme for our ICDP work in Russia.
