Dr Amy Pearson & Kieran Rose will will be presenting their recent paper ‘A Conceptual Analysis of Autistic Masking: Understanding the Narrative of Stigma and the Illusion of Choice’.
Following a short presentation, there will be an opportunity for discussion.
1. How can we understand unique experiences of masking without being reductive (i.e. suggesting women are ‘better maskers’)?
2. Why has the role of trauma/stigma in masking gone mostly ignored?
