(MESA) Improving Culturally Responsive Sexual Assault Services to Transgender Survivors

January 29, 2015 @ 10:15 am - 11:45 pm

This interactive and fast-paced workshop will encourage participants to expand their transgender vocabulary and conceptual framework(s), specifically in how they apply to transgender, gender non-conforming, and gender non-binary sexual assault survivors. Attendees will increase their ability to fluidly and respectfully interact with and serve trans* survivors and loved ones. Topics will include prevalence rates, barriers to accessing services, and unique issues facing trans* survivors and service providers. Participants will leave with a deeper conceptual understanding of the challenges trans survivors face, nuanced ways providers and systems can work to lower barriers to service, ideas of how to integrate knowledge into prevention efforts, and new skills to more effectively provide services to trans* survivors and loved ones.



  1. Expand transgender vocabulary and conceptual framework.
  2. Deepen understanding of prevalence rates and barriers to accessing care for transgender survivors.
  3. List at least three ways of improving service delivery to transgender survivors.


This workshop will be presented at the Multicultural Efforts to end Sexual Assault conference.  To learn more, see their Facebook event at https://www.facebook.com/events/601856463259434/ or see more details at https://mdc.itap.purdue.edu/wk_group.asp?wk_group=MESA
