Working with survivors of torture and trauma: the Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture in perspective.
Aust N Z J Psychiatry. 1995 Sep; 29(3):463-72.AN

Abstract

The health and welfare needs of refugee survivors of torture and trauma have in recent years belatedly found a prominent place on the policy agendas of Federal and State Governments. The development of a statewide service to meet these needs provides an opportunity to illustrate some of the general issues in developing a model specialist community health service, as well as the specific and complex elements involved in the care and resettlement of refugee survivors of torture and trauma. The early experience of the Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture is described and some descriptive data presented. Unresolved issues are highlighted, particularly the difficulty in providing skilled psychotherapeutic assistance to relatively large numbers of traumatised refugees.
