Tree of Life

Location: Nairobi, Kenya

The Tree of Life is a psychosocial support tool based on Narrative Practices. It is a tool that uses different parts of a tree as metaphors to represent the different aspects of our lives. The use of metaphors and carefully formulated questions invites children and others to tell stories about their lives in ways that make them stronger and more hopeful about the future. While it was not designed as a “bereavement tool”, it opens up space and has been used extensively with children in different contexts to facilitate conversations about loss and bereavement.
