“The idea to put together this book came after two years of work in the Centre for
Rehabilitation of Torture Victims (CRTV) within International Aid Network (IAN) Belgrade. It is the expression of a long-felt need of professionals in IAN to share their
experiences in rehabilitation of torture victims with the wider expert, professional and scientific public…

Our clients are individuals who lost their physical and psychic health, their loved ones, relatives, friends, their home, place of origin, neighbours, their safety, ability to work, as well as ability to provide for themselves. However, the most difficult losses to bear are those invisible and immeasurable ones, from the intimate psychic sphere of victims, linked mainly with the loss of capacity for emotional exchange, inability to experience personal and family happiness, loss of confidence in institutions, other people and themselves, as well as the loss of dignity and hope…”
