Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET): Culturally Sensitive Trauma Treatment for Khmer Rouge Survivors

Judith Strasser, Sotheara Chhim, Sopheap Taing

Abstract


In Cambodia, pragmatic, community-based and culturally sensitive trauma treatment approaches are needed in order to assist survivors of mass atrocity and civil war. Narrative Exposure Therapy is a short-term trauma treatment approach deriving from Cognitive Behavior Therapy and
Testimony Therapy. The Transcultural Psychosocial Organization Cambodia (henceforth ‘TPO’) has been developing a cultural adapted version of Narrative Exposure Therapy by integrating Buddhist and traditional practices.
