A multidisciplinary team provides services to beneficiaries through a comprehensive model of rehabilitation and trauma healing, which includes: Medical care, psychological counseling, psychotherapy, psychosocial services and reintegration support, and legal services. An essential activity is appropriate documentation of all cases, for accessing justice and redress, according to the “Manual on Effective Investigation and Documentation of Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment” (the Istanbul Protocol) and to the practical Guideline on documentation of the gender-based violence, elaborated based mainly on the experience of RCTV Memoria, Promo-LEX (authors) and other NGOs.
