The Treatment and Rehabilitation Center for Victims of Torture (TRC) – update

Since 2014, APPEH and TRC have extended their Doubling partnership to continue improving treatment and resources in Palestine.

In 2017, $A20,000 supported individual and group therapy sessions for 162 Palestinian children, their parents, and families throughout the West Bank. This therapy extends to traumatised women in prisons, most of whom have been victim to forms of domestic abuse, or gender- or politically-based violence.

Three narrative exposure therapy psychologists have also been employed full-time, with a third of the funding coming from APPEH.

Meanwhile APPEH has been involved in continued attempts to expand the Doubling concept – an organisation that has helped to promote other projects in South Africa and Liberia.
