Treatment of survivors of political torture: administrative and clinical issues.
J Ambul Care Manage. 1998 Apr; 21(2):39-42; discussion 43-55.JA

Abstract

Treatment of survivors of political torture is a new field, the symptoms of survivors are many and difficult, clinicians in general are not experienced in treatment, and there is little money available. Both administrative and clinical decisions often must take into account political realities not found in other treatment environments. To overcome these obstacles has required building an agency with a small economy, a sense of community among its workers, flexibility about the presence and pervasiveness of politics, the ability to address countertransference, and goals that allow workers to cope with the difficulty and size of the problem of torture.
