A guide developed to assist improving services to survivors of torture and trauma, focusing on adults and young people.
“Responding to people who have survived torture and trauma often represents a significant challenge for those in a position to help. The horror and pain contained in a survivor’s story can weaken our resolve and undermine our belief that anything can really be done to assist. Over the past decade the Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture has dedicated itself to promoting human rights and assisting people recover from experiences of torture. Much of that effort has centred on building and sharing its expertise with other people. To progress this effort further the VFST has produced Rebuilding Shattered Lives to provide people in the field with a comprehensive training resource.”
