    Treating Victims of Torture and Violence Introduction Torture is among the most gruesome of human manifestations, particularly because it does not have its origin in animals, primitive man, or pre-culture It is a display of force, the aim of which is to break an individual’s judgment.

      Each path carries with it an inherent prioritization of some individuals' suffering over others: the inspector, his wife and children, for example, or the Algerian victims of his torture. The Torture Victims Relief Act uses the following definition of torture given in section (1) of ti United States Code: “Torture” means an act committed by a person acting under the color of law specifically intended to inflict severe physical or mental pain or suffering (other than pain or suffering incidental to lawful sanctions.

Each path carries with it an inherent prioritization of some individuals’ suffering over others: the inspector, his wife and children, for example, or the Algerian victims of his torture. For a domestic violence victim, the therapist’s priority is to help begin safety planning and to address trauma after the patient is out of danger. Patients with poor coping skills and little social support often find it difficult to begin trauma treatment. For them, focus on building skills to offset the distress that accompanies trauma therapy.
