Session 5H: Made of Marble: The Intersection of Media & #MeToo in Adolescent Trauma Therapy

Track: Research & Innovative Partners

Welcome to the age of the Strong Female Lead. In this workshop, we’ll explore the impact of #MeToo on media, particularly among fictional female characters, and discuss its applications in adolescent trauma therapy. We'll examine superheroes, ordinary people, and everyone in between and how their struggles with trauma and resilience reflect experiences of real-world survivors. How can these concepts  be woven into trauma therapy to aid teen survivors?
