Jude Boyles will be joined by colleagues Col Bashir, Prossy Kakooza, Nathalie Talbot, and Jess Michaelson to talk about Psychological Therapies for Survivors of Torture: A human-rights approach with people seeking asylum. Which is also the title of a recent publication from PCCS Books entitled “Psychological Therapies for Survivors of Torture: A human-rights approach with people seeking asylum“.
The book is a collection of writings by experienced psychotherapists, counsellors, interpreters, and psychology professionals working with survivors of torture in exile. At the event, Jude Boyles and her colleagues will share their extensive and personal experiences of working with refugees and survivors of torture. Including overarching issues such as interpreter-mediated therapy, assessment, and working with trauma and shame, plus the particular needs of specific client groups such as LGBT survivors, women, separated young people, and families – capturing the everyday realities and challenges of survivors’ lives in the UK today.
It is an event for all counsellors, therapists, and mental health professionals but particularly those who are new to or already working with this client group.
