This issue of the Traumatic Stress Update (TSU) highlights some achievements of the Trauma and Transition Programme (TTP) – a programme in the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR). The first article by Polly Horton Dewhirst discusses the work of the South African Women's Group. The second article, by Modiegi Merafe, highlights the CSVR's work with torture victims and points to the proposed future of this work. Megan Bantjes gives the highlights of training held with the South African No Torture Consortium (SANToC) member organisations as well as two additional organisations, and Dominique Dix-Peek indicates some lessons learnt though the CSVR's Monitoring and Evaluation process.
Dominique Dix-Peek is the Knowledge and Learning Manager at the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR).
