Tree of Life

A workshop methodology for children, young people and adults

This is a revised and updated manual about of the "Tree of Life" workshop methodology first developed by Anne Hope and Sally Timmel in 1984 and later expanded by REPSSI. 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. This “Third Edition for a Global Audience” is based on input from a Tree of Life “Training of Trainers” workshop held in Chennai, India, that was co-facilitated by CRS and REPSSI.
