HPRT has authored and translated several training curricula for primary care doctors, mental health practitioners, and bicultural clinicians dealing with the aftermath of mass violence and natural disasters. These will be made available on this site in the coming months.

On a clinical level, HPRT’s many training activities have always been in partnership with local health/mental health practitioners and survivors. HPRT’s staff for over two decades has been a multicultural and multilingual group. Many members of HPRT’s staff are also trauma survivors.
