We ALL need support: Best practices for gender-integrated support groups (NSAC)

June 8 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

A workshop at the National Sexual Assault Conference

Men, boys, transgender men/boys, transgender women/girls, and non-binary individuals experience high rates of sexual abuse and assault.  Survivors of all genders can benefit from group support services, helping them recognize they are not alone, providing space to share their story with others in a safe environment, and gaining skills within a group dynamic to advance their healing.  This workshop will share the results of a 2016 FORGE national survey of sexual assault support group facilitators and accompanying in-depth interviews with agencies who offered insights into successfully conducting all-gender support groups.  Content from the newly released FORGE guide on providing gender-integrated support groups to sexual assault survivors will highlight best practices and useful tips for facilitators and agencies who provide group support.

Presenters: Loree Cook-Daniels, michael munson
