Finding Our Way: Developing a Community Work Model for Addressing Torture

Finding Our Way: Developing a Community Work Model for Addressing Torture

We outline the parameters for the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation's (CSVR's) approach to community intervention for torture and cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment (CIDT) as it emerged towards the end of 2011. This model is now being implemented and carried out in three places around the Gauteng area in South Africa. In this report, we present how we arrived at the model through systematically combining practical experiences and theoretical inputs.
