Abstract With the rise in the profile of terrorism and war since the September 11th terrorist attack, the Bali, Turkish and Madrid bombings, organisational stress has reached new heights. Companies have subsequently realised the need to provide more resources for their expatriate employees. A few companies are now developing online resources to help employees through these crises. The researcher sought to extend this approach by developing a trial Website for expatriates employees and their families that draws on the concept of 'Storytelling' as a form of 'Narrative Therapy'. The aim is to help expatriates and their families cope with the crisis by being able to share similar experiences, and further to provide them with links to useful resources to help them cope with the situation. This study began with the researcher reflecting on their own family experiences during the Libyan Revolution and then collecting stories from others who have shared similar experiences. This is a research in progress paper, and deals with the development of the concept and then a trial Website, which will be tested in subsequent research. © Proceedings ISCRAM 2004.
