Guidelines for psychiatric care of torture survivors

Kinzie, J. David. "Guidelines for psychiatric care of torture survivors". TORTURE. Volume 21, No. 1 (2011). (Link is to full article PDF on IRCT site.) 

In describing the best psychiatric practices for the treatment of torture survivors, it is necessary to provide background on the various syndromes the survivors suffer and their corresponding neurobiology. There are also well known clinical aspects of these conditions and unique social and cultural considerations of survivors who usually come from very different cultures than the clinicians treating them.
