We educate doctors

To achieve our vision of a world without sexual abuse it requires knowledge. Lots of knowledge. That why we train doctors and other health professionals about sexual abuse, its consequences and how to make a difference in the daily meeting the patient and patient call – by daring to talk about sexual abuse and violence with patients.

Our first clinic is open

In March we opened our first clinic situated on Stortorget 3 in Stockholm.

It is difficult for most patients, but also for many doctors and therapists, to talk about sexual assault and domestic violence. In our clinic, this is the only thing we are working with. That knowledge makes it easier for many patients to dare telling you about their difficulties.

Both victims and relatives are welcome to the clinic.

Doctors: 200 sek/visit
Trauma treatment with referral: 100 sek
Trauma treatment private: 900 sek/hour

Lifespan Integration education

On the 10th to 11th of April, 2015 Wonsa conducted a second further training for trained therapists in the trauma treatment method Lifespan Integration. The method was developed by Peggy Pace (pictured above) in the United States when she was working with adults who have been sexually abused in their childhood. Peggy visited Wonsa in Stockholm in November 2014 and then certified Sweden’s first three trainers in Lifespan Integration; Kristina Pettersson, Bodil Lindström and Ismini Wikström. We are so excited to have them as trainers in Wonsa!

For more information and applying for the coming education email us at anmalan@wonsa.org.

Helping towels

This towel is hand-woven by patients from one of India’s largest psychiatric hospitals, Mental Health Center. Many are traumatized and have difficulties getting work. The staff at the hospital has very few resources, but has still managed to organize a small rehabilitation ward, where patients can weave. At the department there were until recently two looms. Thanks to the cooperation with Wonsa they now have another loom. A little less than half of the money for the towels woven in 100% cotton goes to the Mental Health Center. The rest of the money goes to Wonsa’s work to give vulnerable patients trauma treatment here in Sweden. All administration of the towel is done on a volunteer basis, free of charge.

Baby steps change the world.

Below are pictures of MHC’s inauguration of the new weaving ward. Want to help Wonsa to support MHC’s work by buying towels? Contact us at info@wonsa.org.
