Profiling Torture II: Addressing Torture and Its Consequences in South Africa

Profiling Torture II: Addressing Torture and Its Consequences in South Africa

csvrthumb

The Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR) has embarked on a project aiming to strengthen the struggle against torture in South Africa and the African region. One of the organisation's objectives is to develop a comprehensive Monitoring and Evaluating (M&E) system for the psychosocial services provided to victims of torture. This report uses the information obtained through the M&E system by detailing the characteristics of clients who completed an intake assessment from 2009 to 2011; providing information regarding the impact that CSVR's services have had on clients since the beginning of the project; providing examples of individual Client Progress Reports produced ; describing the drop-out rates for the year, including the reason for drop-out; outlining the compliance rates achieved in terms of documentation of M&E instruments; and indicating how the clients felt about the service they received at the CSVR. Information was analysed using STATISTICA to assess the clients' change over time.
