Many people have experienced traumatic events and remain stuck in a victim mentality. Sometimes they feel guilty for what has happened to them, at times needing to take medication for anxiety or depression. This medication is sometimes misused, which can lead to further problems linked to addictions.
ACT partner CDIS (Centre de Défense et D’Intégration Sociale) plays a vital role in helping their beneficiaries to process the events they have experienced and in finding solutions to their problems.
This project aims to increase the dignity, hope and self-confidence of women, children and other victims of trauma. To promote a culture of healing listening within CDIS, among their partners, their beneficiaries and among the families and friends of their beneficiaries.
