A special topic of discussion was the issue of retraining and vocational guidance for people who received disability in adulthood, including as a result of participation in hostilities, proposed by the head of the VyatSU RUMC Svetlana Bashmakova.
"There are many open questions in this area at the moment. How can such people get a new profession? How to choose a new profession, taking into account their motivation and capabilities? During the discussion, we came to the conclusion that in order to solve these problems, we need new methods of professional diagnostics, new technologies for professional interviews. It is possible that new areas of training are also needed" - Svetlana Bashmakova said.
