Description:
 
Very often both survivors of torture and torture treatment programs may benefit from survivors having a greater voice in the work that torture treatment programs do.  So what does it mean to truly hear the survivor’s voice in providing services to survivors of torture? What are some of the ways that programs can engage survivors?

Our presenters will describe their experiences in creating and developing programs that were started and led by survivors. They will discuss how integrating survivors into the program’s work can support survivors as experts in their own experiences and support them in their post traumatic growth. We will look at how programs might integrate the survivor’s voice to think more creatively about providing mental health services to survivors.
