Group rehabilitation

The purpose of the group treatment is to enable the patients to share their problems with other peers.

Many torture survivors suffer from the same symptoms such as poor sleep patterns, stress, depression, pain and inactivity. Many tend to isolate themselves. They may have conflicts with their environment and find it difficult to integrate into society.

DIGNITY facilitates a safe environment for the patients to reflect on their current life situation, their symptoms and their plans for the future together with other torture survivors. Jointly they develop strategies to manage their daily life and thus increase their quality of life. Varying problems such as migration problems, pain insomnia, PTSD, anxiety and depression are addressed during the sessions. The group discusses possible solutions and is provided feedback and practical advice by the DIGNITY professionals.
