Nonprofit Trauma: Transforming Harm

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

After experiencing work-related trauma, we are told that we cannot tell our stories for fear of becoming “unhirable.” How do we find healing when our traumas are ignored? In this workshop we explore storytelling as survival, and how strategic story-sharing enables us to change the way nonprofits function and the way harms are handled. Utilizing drama therapy, participants will have the opportunity to embody their stories and collectively generate strategies for turning their stories into resources for transformation.
