The Tree of Life is a psychosocial support tool based on narrative practices. The methodology helps avoid re-traumatisation (sometimes called secondary traumatisation) that can be caused by the retelling of the original trauma without the appropriate support. Instead, the Tree of Life helps participants strengthen their relationships with their own history, their culture, and significant people in their lives in a positive way. “The Tree of Life experience allows children and adults who are severely affected by disease, poverty, violence and conflict to tell, hear, and explore stories of loss without remaining trapped in expressions of negativity or grief. It simultaneously opens up spaces and opportunities to tell, hear and explore stories of hope, shared values and connection to those around them as well as to those who have died.”
