The National Partnership for Community Training (NPCT) is a technical assistance program that provides training services to mainstream providers in communities without torture treatment centers. The NPCT program is comprised of three organizations: the Florida Center for Survivors of Torture (FCST) at Gulf Coast Jewish Family & Community Services, Inc.; The Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma (HPRT); and The Bellevue/NYU Program for Survivors of Torture (PSOT). Its primary objective is to train social service providers outside of torture treatment centers, to effectively identify, refer, assist, and serve torture survivors to enable them to become functioning and contributing members of their families and communities.
