The Helen Bamber Foundation
The Helen Bamber Foundation was founded by Helen Bamber OBE and Dr Michael Korzinski in 2005. Their extraordinary partnership brings together two very different perspectives and 60 years experience working with survivors of torture. Helen Bamber began her counselling in the camps of Bergen Belsen and she was a co-founder of the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture. Dr Korzinski was a Visiting Fellow at the Refugee Studies Programme Oxford University, worked with Helen from 1990 and has pioneered innovative body and trauma therapies.
HBF provides medical consultation, therapeutic care, human rights advocacy and practical support to survivors of gross human rights violations, including torture, political oppression, contemporary forms of slavery, trafficking for sexual exploitation and other forms of extreme cruelty. HBF provides treatments for trauma using a holistic approach to give the clients coping strategies to assist them in their journey towards leading a ‘normal' life. This includes psychotherapy, body-mind work, clinical medico-legal reports writing support, as well as social support through a creative arts programme as part of the psychotherapeutic recovery effort.
Our Creative Arts and Events Coordinator, Stephanie Chaplin, will be present at the BACP "marketplace" on 22 April and will be looking to liaise with health practitioners interested in the clinical and human rights aspects of treatment of trauma among survivors of cruelty.
The Forensic Therapists Association
The Forensic Therapists Association [FTA] is a recently formed organisation for those working in the forensic field.

The organisation will be offering networking, useful information, seminars and conferences, support and ongoing research in this field.

Members of the Ethics Helpdesk team from the Information Services department will be available to explore any practice issues that you might like to discuss.
This team has been and continues to be trained in ethical thinking and interpretation based on the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy by experienced practitioners and we are able to offer perspectives for you to explore further with your supervisor. We are also supported by regular supervision with a very experienced practitioner.
The ethics calls the team has taken for nearly ten years have informed the commissioning of more than 50 information sheets to be read in conjunction with the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and which are available free to members from the BACP website
