RECOVERY // PSYCHOSOCIAL INTERVENTION

Psychological specialized intervention
This intervention is created from a feminist approach and based on survivor therapy. The cornerstones are the identification of the lived violence, feelings of guilt and the responsibility in front of the situations, the recovery of self-esteem and provide them of self-protection tools. Also increasing women self-esteem and their own abilities, reduce levels of anxiety and depression as well as other possible consequences resulting from a traumatic event. In short, we offer counseling to the “victim to survivor” process and regain control of their own lives free of violence.
