    Throughout this session, we will critically examine existing frameworks and paradigms, aiming to dismantle institutionalized approaches to trauma that contribute to the pathologization of people’s lived experiences. 

    By exploring the origins of common trauma-informed practices and the significance of the liberatory harm reduction movement, we will contextualize trauma within an abolitionist and anti-colonial context. Through practical examples drawn from diverse contexts, we will envision trauma-responsive practices beyond the confines of conventional institutions and focus on how we can address the root causes by working to dismantle systems of oppression.

    Through thought-provoking reflections and creative prompts, we will imagine alternative pathways, emphasizing non-prescriptive, non-pathologized, care-based methodologies that prioritize individual agency and community empowerment.
