Hi! You are the first person to respond to this post of mine, and I've had it in several places. (SIGH).

As for what I need to know -- tell me, publicly or privately -- what experiences you have had that you count as trauma. That sounds like a question to "weed insincere people out." But it isn't, really. I just need to know what your background has been in the area of trauma recovery, what kinds of things you may have read on trauma, how much support (if any) you have received from family and/or friends, etc. What you woud hope to get out of the workshop. (For instance, I am writing a memoir.) If you need to, just do a quick "free write"--whatever comes to your head when you think of the word "trauma," etc.

Decide how much you feel comfortable with sharing here, which is public, and what you prefer to be private--i.e., on a separate website that will require permission to be a participant.

If you know others who might benefit from knowing about this, please feel free to pass this post on to them, whether they are Medium members or not. (They will have to become members to read it here, but I have other locations where I've posted it if they don't want to become at least a non-paying member.)

Let's get this show on the road!
