The Trauma Centre
Peace-building and human security is threatened by violence whether in the home, the community or in society. The Trauma Centre is a non- governmental organisation established thirty years ago to support South Africa in becoming a non-violent society with a respect for human rights. Survivors of social crime, political violence, torture and other cruel inhumane and degrading treatment are able to access psychosocial services that are appropriate and relevant to their needs. Frontline workers who are exposed daily to trauma caused by violence are provided with effected channels to combat vicarious trauma and burn-out.
