Community Healing: A Resource Guide

Only available electronically



The Truth and Reconciliation Commission brought home to most South Africans the extent to which apartheid left many communities traumatized and dysfunctional. This book is the result of a series of initiatives by the IJR to begin to address issues of collective trauma and healing in communities, such as, Cradock, Langa, Bonteheuwel and Pinelands. It offers coherent strategies and manageable, practical ways of helping communities to face, deal with and move on from the trauma of the past in ways that are both enabling and reconciliatory.
