What We Do

Torture is a trauma that lingers in the bodies and (even more so) in the minds of those who have undergone it.

The entire life of a torture victim has been fractured, and this has an enormous impact on the clinical experience.

For this reason, treatment must not be centered on “clinical recovery”—since torture is not a disease—but rather, take the most holistic approach possible to meeting all of the survivor’s needs, including those of a social and legal nature.

This is why those who seek help from MCT are assisted by teams that include physicians, psychologists, social workers, and cultural facilitators.
