People who identify as survivors already have the significant skills and courage to overcome challenges in their lives. They have proven this to themselves and others by surviving and accomplishing all they have – even when they have walked alone. As human beings, however, we are stronger in life when we walk together and survivor supporters play a vital role in how survivors can continue to move from surviving to thriving. In this keynote, Caroline covers the key elements required for survivors to gain ongoing support from those around them as they move with their trauma and transform beyond it. Sharing her lived experience, Caroline identifies what survivor support has looked like for her and how she has seen it modelled successfully for survivors within her community. This keynote is a vulnerable and heartening presentation that is best suited to community groups and organisations seeking lived experience storytellers to further enhance their work in supporting survivors through empathy and human connection.
