This paper was written with the aim of theoretically informing CSVR's model of community intervention with a specific focus on work done in the field of torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment. The document briefly reviews some of the better known theories and models of community work from psychology and social work. The objectives, principles and ethics which might guide CSVR in its community based torture work are outlined. Some conclusions are made about which theories would be most appropriate to inform the model.
