With all the emphasis on individual self care, what other needs and types of care might we be missing? This interactive discussion will focus on how we co-create safe and healing spaces with survivors, with our peers and colleagues, and within the community we serve. The presenter will offer prompts and ideas for understanding wellness, healing, and advocacy outside an individualistic, hyper-productivity lens to foster reflection on our own needs and emotional cues. Together, we’ll explore the importance of recognizing context, power, and oppression as factors in how our movement can embrace more community care, intersectional healing, and collaboration.
