Restorative Retelling: Accommodating Bereavement After the Violent Death of a Loved One

Wednesday, 15 October 2014

Description

Restorative Retelling is a therapeutic group treatment approach to working with people who have lost loved ones to violent deaths.  This model was designed to moderate internalized trauma and separation distress by focusing on three distinct processes within the group:  restoring resilience, retelling and commemorating the living memory of the deceased and self, and “exposing” and retelling the death story.

Questions and Answers about Targeted Case Management

Friday, 22 August 2014

Targeted Case Management is a federal program that is managed by the states, with counties providing the actual case management services either by their own social workers or by contracting with third party vendors for special population groups. For survivor of torture treatment programs that are in a position to take advantage of it, Targeted Case Management can produce strong revenue.

But what does it take for programs to be able to successfully conduct TCM? In this webinar we will have a conversation with representatives from each of the departments in CVT that were involved in launching and conducting CVT's Targeted Case Management Program: Pete Dross will speak to the political process that involves relationship-building with county commissioners and professional health and human services staff; Andrea Northwood will address the internal clinical process of altering the social services/case management function to conform to TCM requirements and training case managers on the new requirements; Gena Holland will speak to the financial/administrative process that facilitates billing.

Couples Therapy with Torture Survivors

Monday, 16 June 2014



Description

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. Well-designed couples therapy has the potential to help survivor couples deal more effectively with trauma-related marital distress, to assist partners to understand and provide spousal support, to promote treatment engagement, and to strengthen intimate relationships.

This webinar is the first in a post-family reunification series that will address issues affecting torture survivors and their loved ones.  The National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma, and Mental Health conducted interviews with 15 U.S. torture rehabilitation programs to identify promising practices and models of trauma-informed care.  During the interviews, the torture rehabilitation centers stated that “there is a gap in services for domestic violence in the torture survivor community”.

This webinar is designed for case managers who work with clients who have attempted suicide or expressed suicidal ideation.
