Violence against women in war
Handbook for professionals working with traumatised women
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.
