We invite our supporters, donors and friends to join us at this important symposium on “Torture Treatment: Clinical, Community & Policy Interventions, Outcomes & Human Rights.” NCTTP’s symposium program this year promises to be one of the best the consortium has ever presented in terms of learning potential for working with torture survivors. The program is also very fitting for our current political times in which the refugees and torture survivors we serve are threatenedbyuncertainty and fear over potentially decreasing services and opportunities, and increasing concerns over safety here in the U.S.
The two keynote speakers are superb. Dr. Jens Modvig, MD, PhD, is the current Chair of the United Nations Committee against Torture, based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Dr. Pamela Collins, MD, MPH, is the Associate Director for Special Populations, National Institute of Mental Health, Washington, DC. They will also have 10 presentations by NCTTP members, with topics ranging from torture treatment program development, to health care outcomes for survivors across various approaches to treatment, to the exploring of legal challenges for survivors seeking asylum in the U.S.
The NCTTP's Ninth Annual Research Symposium promises a time to be with others in our field who face increasing daily demands and fluctuating financial challenges in providing effective care to refugees & torture survivors in the United States.
