There is an increased interest for radicalization and its prevention. The identity crisis para-digm suggests the potential usefulness of collaborative strategies for the construction of desir-able identities. This paper describes a pilot model of two narrative practices - The Tree of Life and the Definitional Ceremony, supporting alternative desirable identities as pathway to pre-vent radicalization in Iasi Prison, in Romania. Eight young adults detention and 6 universitary students were involved in the narrative processes. The authors claim that the narrative support-ive practices have an effect of restoring dignity, re-humanizing contexts and relationships, and supporting preferred narratives worth living.
