Monday, 16 June 2014


Torture and trauma break connections and disrupt attachment bonds with a consequent increase in marital distress. Our clinical experience at CVT confirms the fact that couples’ relationships are dramatically damaged by torture. At the same time, those relationships are instrumental in the survivors’ recovery.
