Counsellors' Appraisals of the Wits Trauma Counselling Model: Strengths and Limitations

This paper presents counsellors' appraisals of the Wits Trauma Counselling Model which is used for the treatment of psychological trauma. The study was conducted with counsellors working at the Trauma Clinic of the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation. Based in Johannesburg, the Trauma Clinic offers a range of services to victims of violence and trauma. The clinic was established in 1992 in response to an increasing awareness of the need for such a service in Gauteng.
