Training: Improving Care to Torture Survivors
With more than 25 years of experience, we know how to care for torture survivors, but we can’t heal all survivors alone. We offer training projects around the world so that individuals and organizations can learn new and improved ways to provide healing services to torture survivors.
At CVT, training is about finding ways to strengthen and support the people and organizations that work with torture survivors.
Our training projects include:
- Building networks of rehabilitation centers and service providers
- Sharing knowledge through publications
- Connecting peers in online communities
- Supporting organizational development
- Fostering relationships between health and service providers
- Teaching in classrooms
- Mentoring and coaching individual counselors.
In Minnesota, we help health clinics and service providers collaborate on serving torture survivors.
In the United States, we provide training and technical assistance to the growing network of U.S. based rehabilitation centers through the National Capacity-Building Project.
Around the world, we work with torture rehabilitation centers to increase the availability of high quality healing services for torture survivors and to promote human rights advocacy in ways that are safe and effective.
