Community-Based Healing

Our community development work builds on the connections, strengths and resilience of communities from refugee backgrounds.

Trauma impacts on communities as much as it impacts on individuals. When groups of people are exposed to persecution and organised violence, the bonds of trust that hold communities together can become damaged. Therefore, a vital step in the recovery process is supporting communities to build bonds and connections that nurture healing.

Community Workers and Community Connectors at QPASTT work closely with community leaders to build opportunities for traditional and community-based healing.

If there is someone in the community who is not able to process their healing, then their family and perhaps the community may be affected. If there are many people in this situation… perhaps the whole community may also not be able to heal.
