For over two years, my non-profit has trained counselors in Rwanda in narrative psychology, for the sake of Rwanda's newest generation. So far we have collected and publicly archived 100 intergenerational dialogues between young adults and their elders, and our evaluations suggest this has been very positive for both generations, as a spur toward reconciliation, and healing. We will discuss the Questions young people in Rwanda are asking about the post, and the answers from their elders in a dialogue project.
