Introduction

This course explores working with survivors of torture. Displacement and forced migration can put individuals from these groups at increased risk for abuse, neglect, and violence. Moreover, these persons often encounter problems accessing support and services. In order to meet the rehabilitation needs of this population, rehabilitation professionals must be aware of and address special considerations for patient care.

This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Working with Survivors of Torture
  2. Case Study
  3. Quiz
