We will never walk alone in hardship: Responding to collective trauma in Hong Kong — Kwong Ka Fai


Through accounts of one-to-one and community work with people affected by the recent violence and political unrest in Hong Kong, this paper highlights a way of working with people who have experienced collective trauma. Narrative concepts such as enabling contribution, externalising the problem and collective documentation are demonstrated, and the paper focuses in particular on the use of music as a way of exploring preferred storylines and songwriting as a form of therapeutic documentation.
