This facebook group was created by physiotherapists at the Center for Victims of Torture, with assistance from University of Minnesota doctoral physiotherapy students, to facilitate communication, sharing ideas, and offering support. The group is secret, with the highest privacy settings, in order to protect the identity of physio members who could be targeted for working with survivors.
If you are interested in being part of the Facebook group “Physiotherapy for Survivors of Torture,” send a Facebook friend request to Laura Pizer Gueron, who will then accept your friend request and add you to the group. For your privacy, Laura will then unfriend you. If you have questions, email Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As of 2/26/19, we have 205 members from 35 countries, and some very interesting postings, with links to blogs about PT and torture, as well as to videos about treatment ideas.
