Rebuilding Lives: Care for Torture Survivors in Jordan

Commitment by

The Center for Victims of Torture

In 2012, Center for Victims of Torture (CVT) committed to expanding its mental health and physical therapy services in Jordan to reach the traumatized Syrian refugee population over three years. This will include increasing treatment capacity at its existing clinic in Amman, and adding a mobile unit that will travel daily to places in north Jordan with large concentrations of Syrian refugees. The near term impact will be the direct treatment of war affected/tortured Syrian refugees through the provision of high quality counseling and physical therapy services. The long term strategic objective is to provide ongoing training and supervision to credentialed local counseling and physical therapy staff, who will remain in the region as experts in trauma treatment. By engaging community members in the healing process, CVT will assist communities in building their capacity to address torture and trauma recovery in vulnerable areas.
