Importance of Psychological Support for Child Victims of Rape - Clinical Studies in a Post-Conflict Area in Goma
Abstract: Since the second half of the last century, a new form of large-scale criminality has developed around the world, most often justified by economic, social, political and accountancy interests. This is particularly sexual violence. The wars of 1996 and 1998 in the Democratic Republic of Congo and especially in its eastern part, Goma and its surroundings have only worsened the psycho-economic situation already deplorable and cause millions of victims whose most targeted are the children cruelly hit by crimes of all kinds. These victims have been reached in their dignity, in their physical and mental integrity. In the face of the post-traumatic stress presented by the children who were the victims of the violence in Goma, we could not stay idle, which is why we have expressed the wish to help them psychologically with their companions in order to reduce or even eliminate the existing psychological trauma.
