PSOT is a leader in training current and future health professionals about the interrelationship between health and human rights.

Each year, staff members provide direct clinical training to both

current and future health professionals–medicine, psychiatry, psychology, social work, dentistry, nursing, public health,

and law–from all over the U.S. and from around 

the world, in caring for survivors of  torture and trauma.

Cultural sensitivity and competency are essential for promoting effective communication and trust when working with a diverse, traumatized population. PSOT staff members are culturally, linguistically and experientially diverse. New staff and trainees receive intensive training and supervision in cultural competency and humility. Cross cultural issues are a common theme of staff conferences and retreats. Clients are engaged by staff as teachers regarding their cultural backgrounds, norms and beliefs.
