Translating Trauma: A user-friendly guide to understanding and healing

April 27, 2013 @ 1:40 pm - 3:00 pm

Trans* and gender non-conforming people experience bullying, harassment, abuse, assault and hate violence at alarmingly high rates. Trans* people whose identities intersect with race, age, class, incarceration history, dis/ability, and others, often experience the highest rates of violence. Living through trauma doesn’t mean people have an understanding of how these experiences impact daily life. This workshop will translate the characteristics and complexity of short and long term traumatic responses into user-friendly language, allowing attendees to recognize the signs of trauma in their own life and in others’. Tools, skills, and interactive exercises will allow participants to identify where (and how) they can make healthy changes to minimize the overt and covert invasiveness of trauma in their day-to-day lives.
