Practice Implications of Transgender Victimization Data (IN)

September 6

A workshop at the first annual statewide conference focusing on campus sexual assault prevention and response, hosted by the ICESA Campus Consortium

[ http://indianacesa.org/event/campus-consortium-conference/ ]

Description:

A growing body of research highlights high rates of sexual and domestic violence within transgender and non-binary populations. Coupled with these increased rates of singular- and poly-victimization are negative health implications, including disproportionately elevated rates of depression and suicidality, HIV, substance use/abuse and more.  Transgender-specific barriers to care due to poverty, transgender exclusions in health insurance, stigma, and provider lack of education (or overt discrimination), result in transgender survivors of violence of all ages living with both poorer health and longer-term effects of trauma.
