Group therapy model for refugee

Ibrahim A. Kira, Asha Ahmed, Vanessa Mahmoud & Fatima Wassim

This article looks at the Center for Torture and Trauma Survivors’ therapy group model for torture survivors and describes two of its variants: The Bashal group for African and Somali women and the Bhutanese multi-family therapy group. Group therapies in this model extend to community healing. Groups develop their cohesion to graduate to a social community club or initiate a community organization.
