Darren McGarvey: Trauma Industrial Complex – Trauma and Oversharing in the Age of Lived Experience

Trauma is everywhere. Central to its salience is the notion of telling one’s story. Culture demands the authentic testimony of those with 'lived experience' of trauma, but what happens after you put it all out there? Deconstructing the adversity which brought him to wider public attention – growing up in an alcoholic home before descending into addiction himself – McGarvey explores the role personal narratives play in both hurting and healing, and examines the risks involved in telling your story publicly.
