The article "Iryna’s Thousand Wars" tells the personal and clinical story of a Ukrainian teenager who lived in an orphanage with her younger brothers, before a tutor took them to Italy following the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Iryna’s suffering is revealed in the host family through the symptom of mutism. Iryna and the host family are followed by a systemic-relational therapist. The article assumes that the patient may present several traumas, resulting from both relational and environmental events Starting from this hypothesis, the interventions are compared between therapies implemented from a systemic-relational perspective with those who could have been adopted by a cognitive behavioral therapist.

Keywords: war, trauma, adolescence, mutism, cognitive-behavioral therapy.
