Beyond the Letters: The ABCs of Working with LGBTQ Survivors (NCVC)

December 5 - December 7

A workshop at the 2017 National Center for Victims of Crime Conference
https://victimsofcrime.org/

Description:

We all have many identities and experiences that make us who we are. This is true for LGBTQ victims or crime, as well. This session will review core information about who LGBTQ survivors are, including prevalence and other victimization data. An exploration of common barriers LGBTQ survivors face will engage attendees in thinking broadly about the many intersections associated with gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, race, disability, age, economics, employment, access to health care, and many other factors that influence LGBTQ victims of crime from accessing services. Participants will leave with clear and concrete ideas of what they can do to better serve LGBTQ survivors of crime.

Learning objectives

  1. Name two similarities and two differences between LGBTQ survivors and those who are heterosexual and/or non-transgender.
  2. Describe three barriers that LGBTQ survivors have in accessing crime victim services.
  3. State three actions you or your agency can do to better improve services to LGBTQ survivors.
