The course definitely improved my understanding, great delivery style - relaxed discussion, able to raise points and ask questions, backed up with good handout information.

Our trainers

Our training and supervision sessions are facilitated by our frontline practitioners, who work directly with survivors of torture. They bring lived experience as well as theoretical knowledge of working with survivors to training.

At Freedom from Torture, we have been working with people who have survived torture since 1985. We practise ethical and empowering approaches to supporting survivors.  We help people managing the long-lasting physical and psychological effects of the torture, as well as the trauma of loss and living in exile.

We can offer training all over the UK.
