Survivors of human rights violations have a right to treatment and alleviation of their suffering, as recognized by human rights law. Our responsibility as clinicians is to assist survivors through appropriate therapeutic measures and to empower them in their own efforts to recover.
Our clinical team of psychotherapists, psychologists, complementary therapists and psychiatrists understand the nature of trauma and the impact it has on individuals, family and the next generation. They offer a range of therapeutic activities adapted to the needs of our clients ranging from counselling and psychiatric treatment, to group work and family therapy. They regularly find innovative solutions to complex problems in which roles are adjusted through case sharing and mutual interaction. The aim is to strengthen survivors’ capacity to cope with the complexities of ordinary everyday life.
