An Online Resource Library on Gender-Based Violence.

Serving Trans/Non-binary SA and IPV Survivors

More than half of transgender and non-binary individuals have survived sexual assault, and at least a third have experienced intimate partner violence. Trans and non-binary survivors thrive best when working with mental health providers who are able to use their existing clinical knowledge and tap into additional layers of trans-specific respect and cultural competency.  Existing laws and policies also enable survivors to access additional support services (e.g. shelter, survivor-specific support groups).  This very practical workshop will: 1) Discuss federal laws and regulations that improve trans and non-binary survivors’ access to services; 2) Review training and technical assistance materials for service providers; and 3) Explore new trans-specific resources and tools providers can use with survivors.

This training will be a part of the Philadelphia Trans Health Conference.
