Online workshop: Our multi-storied body – Coming back “home”


Narrative Walks


The Institute for Narrative Therapy and Community Work in Greece, in the context of its social response in a difficult period for each of us personally and also for our society, decided to organize a series of interactive online workshops, lectures, and discussions under the title “Narrative Walks”.

Narrative Walks will try to focus mainly on hot topics that can be addressed through the perspective of a narrative approach in the field of psychotherapy, community practice, organizations, and social responsibility.

We start with the idea that Narrative Walks are short in duration (usually half a day), host excellent professionals in their field from all over the world, are offered regularly with an affordable financial contribution, and will inspire, challenge, and create a field of constructive discussion and learning.


In the context of INT’s Narrative Walks


An online workshop

Our multi-storied body

Coming back “home”



Poh Lin Lee

a Chinese Malaysian Australian social worker, narrative therapist, co-researcher of trauma, writer, teacher, film protagonist, and creative consultant


Yannis Angelis

A Greek organizational storytelling practitioner, narrative therapist, “Warm Data” host, and narrative artist



Saturday 18th of June

17:00-20:00 (GMT+3 – Athens, Greece time)



Join us for a narrative walk towards our multi-storied bodies. That’s right, we are not going walking ‘out there’ but rather slowly walking towards our bodies to invite the community of our bodies to express their polyvocal experience – at least the ones that choose to participate in this particular gathering, at this particular time.

Poh and Yannis will guide you on a deeply rewarding journey starting by unscripting ourselves and moving out of the idea of our body as a single entity, by taking up a position with our bodies as multi-storied and experientially co-researching what may emerge through this nuanced, playful and political practice. It is a gentle invitation to slow down and untangle the multiple simultaneous exchanges taking place between the members of our body finding language to articulate stories in a spirit of inclusivity and spaciousness for all voices to be welcomed in conversation.

When we grant full personhood status to the different members of our bodies we have the chance to experience what meaningful participation and democratic process can be within our multistoried bodies – when/why we have consensus and how we might both understand and respond in those times and experiences when consensus is not granted.



Poh is a Chinese Malaysian Australian social worker who brings together a thoughtful and intricate practice based on her experience and knowledge as a narrative therapist, co-researcher of trauma, writer, teacher, film protagonist, and creative consultant. Poh has been engaged in therapeutic co-research with people and communities responding to themes of experience such as family and state violence, displacement (from rights, land, home, body, identity, relationships), liminality, and reclaiming practices of preference and capability. Poh Lin worked alongside people seeking asylum through the film project with Gabrielle Brady, Island of the Hungry Ghosts (2018). Poh Lin works alongside people engaged in creative practices, processes and projects weaving and designing narrative-informed consultations and workshops to make visible possibilities in ethics, authorship, collaborative practice, audience/witness engagement, and socio-political action. Poh is a teacher for the International teaching faculty of Dulwich Centre, an honorary clinical fellow of the school of social work, University of Melbourne, and a member of the International Advisory Committee of the Latin American Journal of Clinical Social Work.

Yannis, as a narrative artist, is currently experimenting with designing web-based interactive therapeutic spaces using “maps” from narrative therapy.
