Trauma, fandom, & healing. EscapadeCon  
Title: Fans & Trauma
Description: Discussion group for fans dealing with trauma in their life (RL, not characters who we love to traumatize). Just show up and share. Or listen.

It has been my dream to discuss trauma with other fen. To talk about fandom as a healing agent. Because fandom is my safe place, the one place where I can be myself.

I've been moderating a peer Post Trauma Support & Recovery group for 2.5 years. This experience has given me the confidence to talk to fen about trauma. And how it fucks us up.

It's been my dream to discuss trauma & fandom at a Con and how fandom can help us heal our trauma. This year is the first year I feel I have enough experience with moderating a peer support group to bring it to a convention and see what we can share with each other.

I hope tgo see you there! Talking optional.
