Treatment for Torture Survivors: Getting Out the Word

Dr. Kenneth Pope, who resigned the American Psychological Association earlier this year, in protest of APA's sorry ethical record in opposing U.S. torture interrogations, has posted a page at his website that lists resources for torture survivors, refugees and asylum seekers. With over 130 links, a person in need can quickly find how to contact major torture treatment centers, legal services, information about asylum and refuge, networks of torture survivors, clinical assessment assistance, and much more.

Activists are making an attempt to spread this list far and wide, so those in need can find help. Please help by distributing this link.

Dr. Pope also keeps a list of articles that address Psychologists' & Physicians' Involvement in Detainee Interrogations. Readers of this blog will find much material of interest there.

What an excellent idea to have an one stop resource for torture survivors and refugees all of the country.

We are a torture treatment center in San Diego and feel honored to be listed on Dr. Pope's website.
