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 mental health therapeutic services to victims of trauma and violence. Our vision is to facilitate the healing and well-being of individuals and families 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.
This is facilitated through the process of therapy, in which individuals meet with a therapist in a safe and contained supportive relationship to begin the process of healing the hurts caused by traumas experienced.
We at the CSVR Trauma Clinic believe, ‘there is no health, without mental health’.
