Capacitar International was invited to East Timor to work with people dealing with trauma from the violence that followed their vote for independence from Indonesia in 1999. Collaborations were established with PAS clinic and Timor Aid. Workshops were given for orphans, refugees and families and a Capacitar team was trained at Timor Aid. This team facilitated workshops throughout the country, especially for teachers. The Capacitar International team of Mary Litell and Joan Condon returned for several years to provide national trainings for multipliers and workshops for mental health and student organizations.
