Psychosocial care for women in shelter homes

Psychosocial care for women in shelter homes

UNODC, 17 January 2011, 150 pages

This publication, launched with the support of USAID, is the outcome of a capacity building programme for caregivers in government shelters for women and includes new research in the area of victim care.

Victims often end up in institutions that lack the capacity to address their specific psycho-social needs and provide the quality care the delicate situation demands. The psychosocial rehabilitation of survivors of human trafficking is crucial to help them rebuild a meaningful life.
