Emphasizing the role of digital mediums as tools for healing and coping, this workshop will examine the accessibility and autonomy of sharing stories online. By discussing current examples of healing from trauma through social media, as well as the benefits and challenges, the workshop will hone in on the ways social networks can foster community and empower survivors. Concluding with a space to share space networks and resources, attendees will understand how social media can give autonomy to survivors needing spaces to validate their experiences.
Underscoring the notions of social media, the goals of this workshop are as follows, in under 140 characters: View survivors’ stories, share how social media impacts you, and discuss how accessible spaces can empower survivors to cope from trauma.
