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. Step one of this project involved conducting research to set the foundations of a rehabilitation model, and is detailed in the report entitled: "PART 1 – Setting the foundations of an African Torture Rehabilitation Model". In the second step, upon which this report is based, the clinical team at the CSVR detailed the components of the model. Finally, the model will be implemented and tested. In order to contextualise this report, it is highly recommended that the Part 1 report be read first.
