The study guide was developed to meet the needs of local psychotherapists who were interested in learning how to work with torture survivors in psychotherapy. For two years, CVT's staff facilitated study groups in which psychotherapists from the local community met once a month for nine months to discuss readings and case material. This guide was developed over the course of several study groups. It contains the curriculum used for the nine group meetings, each of which focuses on a core component of psychotherapy with survivors of politically motivated torture who are living in exile.

These materials are generally available through your public or university library. For materials not readily available there, please consult your librarian.
