Storytelling is a powerful tool in Bangladeshi culture often used to explore family histories, connecting loved ones to glimpses of past experience which is sometimes traumatic. In this two-day workshop, participants will be supported to use storytelling as a form of therapy, in which the tree becomes a metaphor for a person's life. Facilitated by Dr. Romena Toki, Clinical Psychologist, the workshop aims to support participants to tell their story in a way that makes them stronger. 

Session one: Saturday 15 May 10.30-4.00pm
Session two: Sunday 16 May 10.30-3.00pm
