Group Treatment at the Bellevue/NYU Program for Survivors of Torture: Rationale, Processes and Development

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This 56:52 webinar discusses initial group interventions at the Bellevue/NYU Program for Survivors of Torture: Rationale, Processes and Development (PSOT). It describes techniques and processes that helped make group modality one of the more successful methods of service provision at the clinic. It discusses ways in which group participation has facilitated further program involvement by clients in other domains, and describes more recent development of a psycho-educational orientation group for newly arrived PSOT clients. A description of challenges and responsibilities for the group leader segues into a discussion of future directions for this promising modality of treatment. This presentation is complimented by the Group Treatment Information Guide by Dr. Hawthorne Smith.
