Countries and citizens that have experienced violence face post-conflict scenarios trying to repair the damage done, and figuring out how to move forward. There are ways and tools to work with survivors, individually and collectively. Forensic anthropologists, psychologists, social workers, educators, and artists have ways to contribute to the well-being of the victims, along with the establishment of Truth and Reconciliation Commissions (TRCs) that focus on the truth to be heard and the reparations to be considered. 

In this workshop Dr. Arancha García del Soto will present different ways of working with these topics, watch videos and testimonies, and implement group work and role playing to better understand the aspects involved in the damage and the recovery experienced by survivors.
