  • Ends: 2:15 pm on Friday, October 30, 2020
CURA Colloquium with Fernando Ona, Masters Student, Theology Globally, refugees, internally displaced people and asylum seekers have been disproportionately impacted by the burden of human security issues ranging from torture experiences to global pandemic challenges such as COVID-19. This paper examines the role of community health workers in delivering a rights-based horizontal biopsychosocial-spiritual intervention that integrates approaches in interrituality with psychosocial stabilization strategies to address the challenges of torture presentations. This paper will discuss how spiritual care delivery in remote refugee locations can be delivered by community health workers to support and encourage meaning making within suffering while attending to the ongoing challenges in torture treatment within complex humanitarian landscapes.
