The Trauma Clinic is an intervention component of The Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR), an organisation, that focuses on the prevention of violence and building of peaceful societies.
The CSVR Trauma Clinic provides direct and indirect mental health and psychosocial support to victims of trauma and violence. Our vision is to facilitate the healing and well-being of individuals, families and communities affected by violence and trauma, through the provision of contextually based psycho-social support and evidence based mental health interventions.
Healing and well-being is understood as the process of restoration of health from an unbalanced and dysfunctional state to a state of being a whole and balanced self. Reflected in ones connectedness; functionality; improved ability to cope; increased sense of agency; and emotional regulation.
At CSVR we aim to achieve through the process of individual and collective healing approaches, in which the journey towards recovery, reconnection and restoration can begin after trauma.
We at the CSVR Trauma Clinic believe:
”There is no health, without mental health”
“There is no mental health, without social health”
