Join the Conversation

Tuesday, July 7th to Wednesday, September 30th

Please join us in an online, open forum on telehealth. NCB is providing an opportunity for clinicians to ask each other questions, share observations and adapted telehealth protocols for the SoT population via an online forum and technical exchange. This conversation will be a forum for peer-led informational exchange. NCB staff will assist in facilitating and monitoring the conversation.

Directions: Please watch Eugene Augusterfer’s presentation and interview Telemedicine in Mental Health first. Then feel free to join us in this open forum. All are welcome to join this forum, whether you have an account on Healtorture.org or not. For more information on using the forum, please read the directions on the first post. Please keep your comments respectful, relevant, factual, and do not share identifying information about clients per client privacy and HIPAA regulations. This forum will be open from July 6, 2020 through September 30, 2020.

The National Capacity Building Project offers a range of e-learning courses for your benefit. These include:

  • A standalone online course Fundamentals in Providing Services to Torture Survivors aims to enhance core competencies of providing holistic services.  This course may be especially useful to new SOT staff. This online course comprises ten modules – Core Concepts and Eligibility Requirements, Cultural Competence, Mental Health Services, Social Services, Holistic Care Planning, Working with Interpreters, Self-Care, Legal Services, Medical Services, and Introduction to Program Evaluation – is available via Healtorture.org.
  • An e-learning course Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation, and Research (PMER), developed in collaboration with CVT's Partners in Trauma Healing (PATH) project. The PMER series addresses common data collection and evaluation issues among SOT programs that prevent them from reporting more high quality client data. The course is designed for staff that conduct evaluation but who may not be formally trained in Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E). We designed 5 course modules that explore the elements of PMER. 
  • Four Measured Impact Webinars per year, which will, like all of our webinars, be live events that are recorded and shared on this website. We will also continue to expand on the resources and curricula available on this website.
