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”.

Parenting in an age of Media and Technology

Technology and its accompanying social media are parts of our everyday lives, and they impact our parenting and our kids’ growth and development.  What is the current knowledge of the impact of technology on kids – their brains and their relationships?  What about parents’ use of technology and our often unconscious role modeling for the young people in our lives?
