Wednesday, August 12: Session 3 - Digital Storytelling and the “Sensitive” Story: Potentials, Pitfalls, and Case Studies

Presenter: StoryCenter Staff
10 am - 12 pm PST/1 pm - 3 pm EST
Register Now

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.
