Guidelines For Home Visits (Appendix F)

Guidelines For Home Visits (Appendix F)

Home visits were undertaken as a stand-alone intervention as part of the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation's (CSVR's) community project to address the psychosocial effects of torture among ex-combatants on the West Rand of Johannesburg. This report discusses the lessons, challenges and ethical dilemmas encountered in conducting home visits in 2008 and 2009. This evaluation process aimed to contribute to the development of a community intervention model for addressing torture, documented in Finding our way: Developing a community work model for addressing torture.
