What do YES and NO feel like? It's a simple question…but can you answer it? This session dives into the experience of consent/boundaries and what it means for editor-client relationships.
The session will be interactive (to the extent that you’re comfortable), trauma-informed, and neurodivergent-friendly. It will include exercises to help you discern what YES and NO feel like to you and what questions to ask when assessing consent. You will learn how to create space within interactions so you can ask for what you want—and refuse what you don’t want—while protecting your wellbeing. You’ll also experience the idea of consent and boundaries as physical sensations, which can help chronically busy people learn how to stop before they burn out.
Kyra Nabeta learned at a young age to manage social
awkwardness by just working harder. While it was great for her resumé,
this also led to a life of perfectionism, overachieving, and
caretaking. After a spectacular burnout in 2016, she started looking
for a better way to manage social interactions without compromising
her needs. She’s now happy to use her vat of experience as a
trauma-resilience instructor, mariner, academic, spinster,
neurodivergent, athlete, masseuse, and recovering workaholic to help
others avoid the same fate. (And yes, she’s also an editor.)
