Elle (Occupational Therapist) and Ash (Compliance Manager and Crisis Negotiator) combine their professional and personal experiences to bring convention goers a unique look into the psycho-social and physical aspects of community. Topics include physical disability, bullying, social anxiety, crushing con-crunch, sensory overload and convention survival, neurodiversity, imposter syndrome from professionals who live these experiences. Panels are not meant to treat or diagnose. Our most popular in this category are Crushing Con-Crunch, Mean Girls (bullying), and The Con-goers Survival Guide. New for 2023, Express Yourself: Cosplay, Self Expression, and Belonging examines how what you wear promotes play in adulthood, the development of self expression, gender and sexual identity, and the importance of belonging to a community.
