Bringing together women like you and me: Collective narrative practice with women and trauma — Lesley Grant


Collective narrative practice can be an effective antidote to the lingering effects of trauma and violence against women. These practices acknowledge and dignify the complexity, defiance, resistance and agency of women who live with the ongoing effects of violence. Sharing ideas and resources that women have about their own lived experience can address the isolation that too many women experience after violence, and these ideas can foster solidarity and rekindle a glimmer of hope.
