This session is about how to use presence, physicality, switching, and energy projection techniques to send a clear signal that we are not a good choice to victimize.

This session is not at all about victim blaming or victim policing. There are times someone is looking for a victim and there's not much we can do about it. Without policing victims, there's this simple and very important question:

Do you want more tools for your toolkit and more options to handle situations or not?

Growing up in the 70s & 80s in NYC we had no choice to say "It's their fault for attacking me." We could say it, but it wouldn't change a thing. We either could control something or not. We learned that whenever possible it was best to choose something we could control.

There are times we leave ourselves open to being noticed as a potential target. There are things we can do to be more adaptable, ways to influence first impressions, and more tools to add to our toolkit so we can be ready for various situations. We may be able to protect ourselves by changing how we present ourselves in physical space, and more.

Taught by Almerissa, Aliessa & Dreal of Crisses.

The Crisses are an autistic, disabled, non-binary, gender-fluid, plural-identified quoigenic DID-diagnosed polyfragmented modular system with about 157+ system members of a wide variety of types. They are geeks, authors, content creators, instructors, healers, coaches, and mental health advocates. They have hEDS, CIDP, Reynaud’s syndrome, several other related issues, and are transition opportunists. They live in upstate New York in the USA, and moonlight as a pet sitter.

Aliessa of Crisses is our "elected" core. She's a centuries-old but still tree-young dryad who believes that love wins out over everything. She's our heart, inspiration, and one of our most adored headmates.

Almerissa of Crisses is a system protector, the first known system introject to front, and is mainly in charge of internal landscaping in our system.

Buck of Crisses, a cis-male protector and former internal persecutor, is willing to throw his privilege around and make waves to open doors for those with less access and privilege, and has been taking a leadership role in the Crisses’ advocacy and activism efforts.

Chrissy of Crisses is one of our deeper manager residents who can help connect people for internal communication and conduits.

Dreal of Crisses is one of their crew of healers, a shamanic & reiki practitioner, and trained life coach.

Faun of Crisses, Buck’s twin sister, as far as we know was born to this body and created our derivation maps, having been around for a very long time.

Justin of Crisses is a joker of all trades, doesn''t seem to take much seriously except the things he does, and has a rule of poking fun at himself or inanimate objects (often talking to them and asking them to please stay put), not people.

Moonlite of Crisses, deaf and mute, takes the role of an internal self-helper, speaks American Sign Language (ASL) as a second language, writes, and works with Chrissy, Star & Dreal on self-help materials.

Star of Crisses is another healer, a wise woman herbalist, reiki practitioner, and life coach as well as one of the first people to appear in the Crisses’ system.
