This handbook, compiled by medica mondiale, represents the first comprehensive, multidisciplinary overview of the subject of "war-related sexualised violence and trauma". The articles in it describe various working approaches which have proved valuable in working with traumatised women in areas of political crisis as well as with women refugees in countries of exile.

The book provides information on the extent of sexualised violence in regions of war and political crisis and on its background; it describes the consequences for women and girls within their cultural context and gives particular attention to the difficult situation of women who appear as witnesses at court trials.

The practice-oriented part of the book contains a wide range of recommendations for dealing with the consequences of sexualised violence and trauma for professional helpers working in the areas of gynaecology, sychosocial work and therapy, legal counselling and court practice as well as in the field of development or humanitarian aid.

If you order the book with this order sheet 3 Euro will go as donation to medica mondiale.

This volume is a manual for counsellors, psychologists, social workers and other professionals who work with women and children in a psychosocial, psycho-educational, therapeutic or advisory capacity. The warm-ups and exercises contained herein have been introduced and customized for staff members, trainees and clients of medica mondiale Afghanistan by various contributing international trainers.

While ample explanation is provided for each of these exercises, it is strongly suggested that they only be implemented by those who have received in-person training on both the theory and practice of using bodywork and/or creative arts therapy work with traumatized individuals.

This manual is divided into two parts, WARM-UPS and MAIN ACTIVITIES. Each of these contains three sections that characterize the overall objective of the exercise: Relaxing, Energizing and Connecting. Listed for each exercise, there is an estimated duration (Time), the reasons behind doing it (Rationale) and a description of what to do (Activity). For exercises requiring any materials, there is also a Materials section. Finally, in some instances there is an additional section called Adaptation or Extension, explaining how the exercise can be changed or continued and built upon. Most of the exercises in this manual may be used with individuals or groups.

“We were full of hope for a better future. And many of us have worked to improve the life of the women. But now it is getting more and more difficult each day to continue this work. It is quite simple: If the international community does not support us, then we are unable to continue.“ Humaira Rasuli, Director of medica mondiale Afghanistan.
