Outliving GamerGate: How We Cope, Survive, and Thrive Beyond (Online) Abuse
This session will offer the lenses of neurochemistry and mind-body connection to discuss how we process extreme stress. We'll also be looking at other frameworks that may provide at least partial fit to explain some of the patterns identified in movements like GamerGate, including domestic violence studies. This will also be an action-oriented session, with audience members being given the opportunity (if they're comfortable) to try a few grounding techniques discussed in a safe space to get a feel for them.
