This unique volume explores the enormity of the issues surrounding the numerous mental health problems of the millions of refugees, asylum seekers and torture victims around the world. While these issues have received attention in human rights and international relations circles, and the body of theoretical knowledge in the field has been advanced considerably, there is little practical information available.

This book fills a significant gap in the literature by providing readers with an integration of theoretical and assessment issues with practical treatment modalities. Chapters discuss various therapeutic approaches, clinical interventions, medical, legal and moral issues, while considering cultural, religious and political-geographical concerns specific to these areas.

Broken Spirits is the definitive work on helping refugees, asylum seekers, and torture victims, allowing the therapist to join with the client in a journey for human dignity.
