The tent of stories is a method of engaging refugee children in storytelling and social interaction. Through the tent and a ‘story-stone’ a safe and structured environment is created. Different ways of processing a story are explained. In dealing with stories, children learn to use their imagination as a valuable coping strategy. Like any good method, the ‘tent of stories’ evolved through interaction with the children it was meant for. This article tells the story of the ‘tent of stories’ itself.
