If the role that sharing personal stories can play in emotional healing is so clear, why do few community-based opportunities exist for trauma survivors to connect with each other, share their experiences publicly, and demand justice?  Since 1999, StoryCenter has been partnering with behavioral health, grassroots survivor support, and advocacy organizations to create compassionate listening environments where “sensitive” and stigmatized stories can be explored within local communities.

This webinar, led jointly with our Asian Women’s Shelter colleague Orchid Pusey, offers: 

  • An overview of the theory, research, and practice behind our approach to addressing trauma;
  • An honest look at case study examples, with attention both to the ways they have made a difference and the ways they might be improved; and
  • A guided, interactive conversation about when sensitive stories can be impactful, in a community-based public health context, and when the challenges inherent in “representing” trauma suggests alternative approaches are appropriate.

Description: 

Stalking is a crime that is frequently minimized and misunderstood, in part because it is a behavior that is socially normalized. Media plays a critical role in shaping our understanding of stalking, and other forms of violence. Media literacy is a tool that we can all use to better deconstruct media and deconstruct the culture at large as we work towards building more effective violence response and prevention methods. Using media clips and examples, this webinar will introduce basic media literacy concepts and deconstruction questions that can be integrated into stalking, domestic violence, and sexual assault response and prevention programs, workshops, and daily conversations.
