A Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture (CCVT) resource manual for ESL teachers.

CCVT believes that "it is imperative that the ESL instructor be aware that those who have survived torture require special consideration. The ideas presented in this publication are the result of research and methods successfully employed by the ESL department of the CCVT. We hope that they will serve as a useful guide for other ESL instructors in the community."
