Rehabilitation Department

The Department is considered one of the most important departments of the Center, as its work focuses on providing diverse treatment to victims of torture and their families. The Center provides medical and psychological treatment services, as well as clinical and social counselling services to victims of torture, organized violence, and their families. This is done through a qualified and multi-specialized technical team that provides these services using the latest techniques in therapy and intervention, by receiving beneficiaries and visitors inside and outside the Center in various West Bank governorates, and by establishing home therapy service programs that contribute to reaching affected cases with maximum speed, for prevention, treatment, and accelerating the recovery process of the affected and their reintegration into society. The centre's qualified teams use the latest methods and techniques of psychological treatment and intervention, especially cognitive-behavioural therapy, narrative therapy, crisis intervention, and eye movement therapy. These come within a set of multi-specialized competencies and qualifications that closely follow global scientific developments in this field.

 The department also provides vocational rehabilitation for victims by training them in various professions that benefit them in their daily lives and become a source of income for them, such as mosaic-making, hairdressing, carpentry, and others. The Center also organizes summer camps for children annually to alleviate the suffering of affected children by creating assistance programs that take into account the urgent needs of children for play and entertainment, while focusing on developing the children's abilities and skills in dealing with stress, trauma, and reducing or alleviating the effects of shock. The unit is also an extension of therapeutic, rehabilitation, educational, and preventive programs for the mental health of children affected by repeated and ongoing traumatic events by the occupation authorities. Additionally, the unit provides practical field training for university students and documents violations to be presented as sworn testimony in international conferences and committees.
