Description

This is an informal presentation combining story sharing and discussion intended for survivors of sexual abuse and our friends and other members of our support systems (you know who you are). Negative survivorship is an approach informed by the principles of harm reduction as well as the work of sick and disabled activists and others that seeks to build an alternative to the compulsory optimism and hopefulness of the commercialized trauma recovery industry and to increase our individual and collective capacity to support survivors coping in whatever ways we can.
