Physiotherapy with Torture and Trauma Survivors.

Ms Susan H Roxon

The usual differentiation between mind and body, inherent in Western medical training, is not always easy to make with survivors of torture. Physiotherapists can find therefore that working with such people presents challenges for which their training has not prepared them. This lecture gives some guidelines of how to work with survivors of torture and trauma  within an integrated mind/body framework, using examples from her practice.

 

Recorded at the NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors (STARTTS)
April 2008, New South Wales, Australia.
