Developing an African Torture Rehabilitation Model: A Contextually Informed, Evidence-Based Psychosocial Model for the Rehabilitation of Victims of Torture (Part 1: Setting the Foundations of an African Torture Rehabilitation Model Through Research)

The Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR) embarked on a project of developing an evidence-based African torture rehabilitation model, with the goal of gaining an understanding of what the main challenges faced by victims of torture are, and how these can be addressed. The first step of this project, and the basis for this report, involved conducting research to set the foundations of a rehabilitation model. This involved a review of the literature available on victims of torture. A total of 77 research articles were analysed using thematic content analysis to produce a list of impacts most commonly reported.
