Description

This empirical study is mainly concerned with torture’s methods as its impact on Palaestinian Ex-detainees in Israeli detention centers. Torture has been considered a crime against humanity and one of the ugliest forms of human rights abuse due to its profound negative effect not only on the victim and/or his family but also in the community at large. Torture incidents are always detected which reflect a wide practice in several countries where Israel is on the top of the list. Perpetrators continue to commit their sinful acts in the lights of the impunity they enjoy and the lack of punishment. Findings of this research, as other local and regional studies doubtlessly confirm that Israel systematically imposes torture among Palestinian detainees. This study portrays the psychosocial and physical complications of torture and their immediate and long term effects.

Background
T he Treatment and Rehabilitation Center for Victims of Torture-TRC is a Palestinian nongovernmental, nonprofit organization active in the area of defending human rights. TRC's developmental mandate is to arrive at a Palestinian society free from torture and organized violence. For the realization of this objective, TRC strives to increase community awareness of human rights and to disseminate knowledge on the topics of torture and organized violence (such as prisoners, the wounded, families of martyrs, victims of the Apartheid Wall and the occupations' road blocks, victims of the settlers attacks and others). In addition, TRC offers victims of torture and organized violence and their families in the Palestinian Society a complementary set of therapeutic and rehabilitation services. Beneficiaries from the service programs take advantage from a wide range of treatment, rehabilitation and training, awareness raising and voluntary medical visits to the homes of those individuals unable to reach TRC. Free medical services and other needs as well as vocational training are provided to the beneficiaries so as to enable them through acquiring skills that qualify them to the labor market and start their own income generating projects.
The idea of having a rehabilitation center for victims saw light in January of 1997 when TRC was founded. The accumulated experience in addressing the issues and needs of victims of torture and their families for creation of a specialized professional place paved the way so as to assist victims and their loved ones who
Shared the sufferings caused by the traumatic events during the detention period. TRC is only center of its kind in the West Bank, in terms of its functions and services. A voluntary Board of Directors, composed of independent Palestinian professionals and public figures, is responsible for provision of oversight and decision making with regard to TRC's policies, programs and functions as well as its personnel.
TRC main Objectives: 1. To continue to provide psychosocial assistance and rehabilitation for the victims of torture and organized violence and their families. 2. To disseminate and promote in the Palestinian society a culture of respect of human rights and the rights of victims and those affected by torture based on the values and principles derived from the International Humanitarian Law, the international laws on human rights and the international conventions against torture and organized violence.
3. To contribute to the exchange of experience and knowledge through training programs and building capacities of institutions and their personnel in the areas of human rights and mental health, as well as for the prevention and criminalization of torture. 4. To maintain the provision of sustainable services for the victims, through the development of TRC's strategy and management structure to ensure the sustainability of TRC's services and its developmental role in society, by focusing on specific themes related to human rights, torture, and organized violence).
