Abstract:
Purpose: To outline the philosophy and practice principles behind programs offered by the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture and evaluate how and why such programs have been proven effective in promoting empowerment among women and children. Background: Empowerment of women and children can be achieved on different levels, such as (1) individual, (2) familial and (3) community. The Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture (CCVT) views torture and war as traumatic not only to individuals, but to families and entire communities as well. This holistic view of trauma is well reflected in CCVT's holistic approach to the healing and empowerment of their child and women clients. Over the course of its 25-year history, CCVT has pioneered several programs to address this need for empowerment: Volunteer Befriending Program, Mutual Support Groups, and Children/Youth Program.
