Education-Training and Scientific Activities in Aksaray City During The Seljuk Period of Turkey

Ryan J. TRUBITS [1]

My partnership and research with the Center for Survivors of Torture Dallas Fort Worth CST DFW investigated the struggles that torture survivors have endured within an unfamiliar healthcare and social service system. Many survivors who have faced Post Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD , anxiety, and depression also endure a secondary threat which leads to re-traumatization through the struggles of acculturation. The aim of this research study was to: 1. Identify differences and assumptions between service providers’ and clients’ definitions of self-sufficiency; 2. Examine prominent barriers to self-sufficiency that survivors encounter; 3. Pinpoint the survival strategies that survivors use in order to cope with life in DFW; 4. Determine what resources CST staff, area service providers, and survivors felt needed improvement at CST and in the DFW metroplex
