Welcome to The Barbara Chester Award

To Clinicians and Healing Practitioners for their work with Survivors of Torture

In honor of the life and work of Dr. Barbara Chester, The Hopi Foundation has established an award for outstanding clinicians and practitioners who treat victims of torture, their families and communities. In issuing this award, we hope to honor the worthy persons who undertake the difficult and often dangerous work of providing healing services in circumstances of torture. We hope also to call attention to such abuses directed against specific regions and communities, and draw worldwide support for prevention of torture and associated trauma.

We are pleased to announce the
