Abstract:In September 2005, the Rwanda Anglican Church Diocese of Byumba started to bring a sociotherapy programme into force. In the context of this programme, people come together in small groups to reconnect and rebuild their personal lives and their community. This collective volume has been written mainly by the sociotherapists themselves. Its 25 chapters deal with topics such as the role of sociotherapy in the reconstruction of Rwandan society; how sociotherapy can help orphans, widows, pupils, former prisoners, single mothers, and widows living with AIDS; the role of sociotherapy in conflict handling and poverty alleviation; cooperation between sociotherapy and local authorities and between sociotherapy and the Christian Church; and comparisons between sociotherapy and traditional methods.
