Description:

In this first session of our  Measured Impact Webinar (MIW) mini-course, "Therapy for Refugees and Torture Survivors: New H.E.A.R.T. (Healing Environment and Restorative Therapy)" Dr. Richard Mollica of the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma  introduces the H.E.A.R.T. model of care in working with survivors of torture. Dr. Mollica  describes the H.E.A.R.T. model and how the concepts contained in it may provide a different way of thinking about therapy with survivors of torture.  Attendees were given tools for hearing the survivor’s story and understanding its importance as an element of healing.
