ISDP Statement on Ukraine

The International Society for Developmental Psychobiology denounces the Russian war on Ukraine in the strongest possible terms and stands with the people of Ukraine. We keep all of our members with relatives and friends in the Ukraine in our thoughts. Only a week in, this aggression has already damaged families in children in ways that have current and lasting impact. Like the conflicts and associated refugee crises in Syria, Venezuela, South Sudan, Palestine, Myanmar, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Somalia to name but a few, displacement and violence beget unimaginable trauma.
