Summary of Our Services

Individual and Group Psychological Support: The center offers a series of ten individual or group therapy sessions. These are carefully planned based on proven scientific methods to treat psychological trauma. These sessions provide a safe space for individuals and families to discuss issues arising from the impacts of torture and wartime trauma.

Interactive Workshops: For those less severely affected, the center conducts interactive workshops that focus on psychological coping strategies. These sessions are designed to deal with the emotional trauma stemming from the brutalities of war and torture. They aim to promote self-healing by equipping participants (both males and females) with psycho-physical and social tools to manage the mental stresses associated with such traumas.

Inter-Organizational Coordination: The center collaborates with other organizations offering psychological, social, health, legal, and educational services. This multi-disciplinary approach aims to improve the quality of life for survivors of torture and for refugees, be they individuals or families.

Community Awareness: We work to elevate community consciousness regarding the mental and physical health repercussions of torture and war trauma. This is done through informational sessions that aim to educate individuals, families, and local communities about the impacts of such experiences.
