Who do you trust? Engaging meaningfully with young men and boys.

Gode Migerano

Gode Migerano presents STARTTS work with refugee young men. He specifically focus on the use of a narrative approach called the “Team of Life” developed by the Dulwich Centre. First developed in response to the experiences of former child soldiers from the Sudan, the 'Team of Life' approach uses narrative ideas and sporting metaphors to enable young people to deal with traumatic experience without having to speak directly about it (including for example the sport field, players, referees, rules of the game, etc). Gode presents the use of this approach with a group of young men from various refugee backgrounds, in the context of a youth camp. This approach is particularly effective with young men due to the use of sporting analogies.

Recorded at the NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors (STARTTS)
10 December 2012, New South Wales, Australia.
