This workshop will provide the opportunity for those who have experienced sexual trauma to use writing as a vehicle for deeper exploration and to create a healing text. We define sexual trauma broadly. Sexual harm takes many forms. We recognize that sexual trauma occurs across identities, communities, and contexts; this workshop is inclusive and welcomes all.
The TPT workshop provides sexual trauma survivors the opportunity to share in an anonymous or semi-anonymous online writing forum.
The workshop begins with a discussion of how and why we write about sexual trauma. Together, we read,discuss and learn how to respond to writings about sexual trauma. We then write together, and after grounding exercises, we respond to each other and reflect. The event is an empowering one, and allows survivors to tell their truths as they see fit.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
This workshop is open to folx who have experienced sexual trauma. We define sexual trauma broadly: there is no value in measuring or evaluating the legitimacy of others’ suffering. Sexual harm takes many forms. We recognize that sexual trauma occurs across identities, communities, and contexts; this workshop is inclusive and welcomes all. We recognize, too, that sexual trauma happens more frequently to and often creates increased hardship for individuals with multiple, marginalized intersecting identities.
