Utilising group therapy approaches to assist recovery of torture and trauma survivors

Dr Boris Drožđek

Group psychotherapy counteracts the isolating effects of interpersonal trauma, and enables survivors to connect with sources of resilience within themselves and others. Throughout the years, this approach has mostly researched the populations of Vietnam veterans and female survivors of sexual abuse and it was well supported by positive controlled trials. However, the nature of evidence from research evaluating group techniques can still be considered as preliminary. Studies examining the outcomes of group therapy with torture survivors among asylum seekers and refugees are very scarce.
