In 2008 through an additional Technical Assistance initiative funded by the Office of Refugee Resettlement, CVT’s National Capacity Building Project partnered with ACCESS Center for Torture Survivors in Dearborn, MI, to provide specialized technical assistance to programs serving Iraqi torture survivors.

The informational webinars and related resources produced during that year on topics related to providing culturally appropriate services to Iraqi clients have been archived on this site.
