This podcast is available on

In 2023 torture remains a terrible reality in many countries worldwide. Today, as we celebrate the International Day for Torture Victims we’d like to give the floor to someone who helps torture survivors overcome their trauma. Goran Lukic works as a psychologist for our network member, Freedom from Torture. Based in London, he is regularly confronted to the suffering of refugees fleeing threats to their lives and mental integrity. He tells us how, with in-depth psychological work, one can recover from the worst.
