Singing to the Lions’ by Catholic Relief Services is a training manual based on proven psycho-therapeutic interventions that help children and youth overcome fear and violence in their lives. It targets children ages 11+; however, adaptations are easily made for younger and older groups, including adults. It is intended for survivors of armed conflict, refugees, adolescents and young people who experienced physical or sexual abuse and other trauma. Through its use of games, drawing, drama and stories, ‘Singing to the Lions’ can be implemented for groups of +/- 20 people in a 3-day workshop or divided into six separate modular sessions of three hours each. The resource set consists of the supplement, handout, and data entry sheet. They are intended to be used with the guide.
The guide is available in English, Spanish, Arabic, French and Hindi.
