The chapter of the book i have only the FINAL draft exactly as it was published by the book editor but it would be tooooo long to add it here (so sorry) so perhaps you could just mention it and the link for the publisher Springer (for purchase, unfortunately) as this is a public health important topic/>

but the link for the UN Human Rights (2016) document on how children survive torture is public and available (here, below):

Best regards,


Thanks, TW]
