“My mind is not like before”: Survivors of torture and trauma amongst refugees – identification and treatment”

The Torture Journal team would like to invite you to an informative presentation and debate.

How can we better address torture trauma in our work with migrants and refugees? How do we identify those who need rehabilitation services? What can we learn from approaches elsewhere? Torture Journal gathers best practice and experiences to inspire those working with migrants and torture survivors in Denmark and elsewhere.

Please join researchers and clinicians for an informative presentation and debate to support life after torture.
