Kink, Trauma, Transformation
Description: Drawing from research on effective trauma work and evidence based practices, this workshop dispels harmful myths about kink and trauma, and examines not only how survivors can have a healthy relationship to BDSM, but also can find profound healing through kink, given the right set of circumstances.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: discuss the difference between trauma reenactment and trauma mastery in the context of BDSM; evaluate the benefits and risks of using BDSM as a conduit for trauma healing.
