Resources | Center for Victims of Torture


We believe in the exchange of knowledge, ideas and creative strategies to heal torture survivors and inspire effective action to end torture worldwide. Over the years, we have developed a number of reports, manuals and resources to share our knowledge about the effects of torture and how to provide appropriate and sensitive care to survivors.

We hope the resources in this section will help survivors find supportive care, and inform and inspire others to work for a world in which everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
