Transgender 101 for Victim Service Providers

General Material
Publisher(s)

This fast-paced webinar is designed to assist victim service providers in better serving transgender survivors of sexual assault and other forms of violence. Many providers are committed to serving transgender clients, but seek additional information in order to provide more competent and sensitive services. This webinar focuses on basic transgender concepts, but includes references and examples specific to victim service providers. The components covered include: 1) discussing the diversity under the Òtransgender umbrellaÓ; 2) exploring social, medical, legal, and other options transgender people may pursue; 3) stimulating thought about which components of a transgender personÕs life might (or might not be) relevant to the roles crime victim professionals play; and 4) disseminating resources to support transgender crime victims and the professionals who serve them.
