Community level interventions in working with torture and trauma survivors - nexus between theory and practice

Jasmina Bajraktarevic-Hayward

Rebuilding relationships and trust are the essential components in recovery from human induced traumas such as war, imprisonment and torture. Organised violence as state terrorism target and fragment basic community structures and disintegrate relationships. Consequently, in addition to clinical practice, a community development framework for service provision is well placed to address the psychosocial sequelae of organised violence.
 
STARTTS approach to working with our client population involves conceptualising the issues as a complex interplay between the consequences of torture and refugee trauma; the process of exile, migration and settlement; and normal life cycle events. Additionally, individual and environmental characteristics are taken into account.
