Abstract

Psychologist Pavel Lushyn, Ph.D. describes his escape and exile from his Ukrainian home on February 24, 2022. In fleeing for the border, his home in flames, he worries about running out of gas and a working GPS. Eventually he finds himself a new world, but with a continued purpose: working with patients and helping them also find ways to survive and carry on amidst a chaos and uncertainty previously unthinkable. Yet Lushyn remains optimistic that the synthesis of old and new can lead to creative adaption amidst tumult, innovative and emergent, even when circumstances are unpredictable or even shocking.
