Our Stories Are Our Power: The Role of Survivor Testimony in Personal Healing and Social Change


DATE(S):
Tuesday, March 6, 2018
TIME:
1:00 -4:00PM
LOCATION:
Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center
9603 Woods Drive, Skokie, IL


BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
Survivors from across the globe are increasingly using their own stories to challenge legal and social responses to gender-based violence. #MeToo is just one example of this trend. In this session participants will learn about a growing body of research that establishes links between the power of telling stories and healing from trauma – what has been called “post traumatic growth”. Presenters will also discuss “the ethics of story sharing,” how testimony can change public attitudes, and the important considerations to be weighed before a survivor makes the decision to publicly share a deeply personal story. The presentation will incorporate lecture, moderated group dialogue and the award-winning photography of Patricia Evans, herself a survivor of sexual violence.
