An individual approach to encourage post-traumatic growth
Narrative Exposure Therapy, or NET, is an evidence-based approach to processing traumatic events using symbols.
The person who has been prepped and is ready to go on this journey towards healing, does so by way of touching upon both the happy moments, and the distressing moments, in their life. The sessions, once committed to, allow the person to be gently taken back through the memories with care and kindness, and also brought safely back to present moment before leaving each session. This way of revisiting traumatic events has been used by organisations such as the UNHCR when working with asylum seekers and refugees to help individuals tell their stories. It can be used with children, young people, and adults, to help express "unspeakable" traumas and negative experiences.
