Pilot Program Sociotherapy in Goma, DRC 

Most of us have a wife who was raped 

In this group we are healing one another

Recently the Institute of Higher Education in Mental Health (Institut Superieur du Lac – ISL) started a pilot program sociotherapy in Goma. The set up of this program was inspired by the positive impacts of sociotherapy as practiced in Rwanda. Eight 3rd year ISL students mental health or trauma counselling were trained and successively started four sociotherapy groups. Each pair of students facilitates one of these groups. Supervision is done by ISL staff and the program coordinator of the Bugesera sociotherapy program in Rwanda. The pilot program is financed by a small Dutch humanitarian NGO. Read more
