The Bellevue/NYU Program for Survivors of Torture was featured in a powerful article on Vice.com. The piece, titled "Inside a Clinic Devoted to Helping Refugees Who Have Survived Torture," profiled the Bellevue program work, its staff, and its clients.
Read the piece in it's entirety:
"It became clear to me that even though those individuals were granted asylum," said Keller, "they had all of these huge unmet health, medical, mental health, social, and legal needs."
~ Dr. Allen Keller, co-founder of the program
"Most people talk about secondary trauma that we take on because of the intesity. What they tend to overlook is the concept of vicarious resilience that we also take on from our clients."
~ HangYi Cheng, a social worker at the clinic
