Verein Multikulturell in Austria tested the bread baking method for working with women on the topic of prevention of domestic violence
Bread baking may also be used as a method of biography work, which is excellent for women. Making and baking bread together is a good way to built trust, without doing a lot of explanations. In these trainings it will be used on a preventive non-therapeutic level (for this professional therapy staff would be needed). Especially the tactile experience of touching the dough, the involvement of the hands brings back memories to women and makes them speaking about them. What you need is a kitchen or room, which is big enough for a group of people, with an opportunity to bake the bread nearby. Women liked the method to reflect experiences and telling stories about their lifes very much.
