ASPIS (Austria)

The Aspis association is an independent organization that offers a variety of services for traumatized people. Whoever undergoes physical violence, often retains psychic, psychosomatic, and physical issues due to the „extreme situation.“ The effects of „traumatization“ require special medical, and psychological care. The interdisciplinary team is specialized in psychotherapeutic work, and in the execution of the accompanying psychotherapeutic procedures. Additionally, they collaborate closely with experts from other fields. (including: physicians, social workers, foreigner consultants, the UNHCR, etc.)
