Information Guide: Understanding and Treating the Deleterious Effects of Refugee Trauma on Health

The National Partnership for Community Training is pleased to present the Information Guide:  Understanding and Treating the Deleterious Effects of Refugee Trauma on Health.

While relevant for all providers, this information guide is targeted particularly towards physicians and clinical practitioners. The guide outlines general principles for medical professionals working with survivors of torture, explaining common medical problems survivors may present, as well as how trauma somaticizes into illness. The guide provides tips for eliciting the trauma story from clients.

This information guide is based on research and modules presented at NPCT trainings developed by Dr. Allen Keller, MD, the Director of the NYU/Bellevue Program for Survivors of Torture and Dr. Richard Mollica MD, Director of the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma.
