This forum will be open from July 6, 2020 through September 30, 2020.

This manual, developed by Nancy Murakami, LCSW,  Hawthorne Smith, PhD, Katherine Porterfield, PhD, Maile O'Hara, PhD, and Melba Sullivan, PhD of the Bellevue/NYU Program for Survivors of Torture is based on PSOT’s short-term, supportive, psycho-educational group therapy model.  Called the Orientation Group, this model was developed to address the psychosocial and adaptational needs for a population of survivors of torture and severe war trauma presenting to a clinic in a metropolitan public hospital.

For more information on this Orientation Group, and how the model can be used by torture treatment programs around the US, please see the webinar “The Orientation Group: PSOT's Approach to Welcoming and Further Resourcing Clients” presented by Melba Sullivan on March 18, 2015.
