Serving Gender Variant Crime Victims: Transgender 101
Faced with a crime victim who is visibly gender variant or who describes themselves as transgender, many professionals feel confused, curious, or worried, and consequently alienate and/or offend the victim by asking inappropriate or offensive questions.  This workshop is designed to:  1) Demystify who is under the “transgender umbrella”; 2) Enumerate the various “components” of being transgender; 3) Discuss which components are and are not relevant to the various roles crime victim professionals play; and 4) Disseminate resources to support transgender crime victims and the professionals who serve them.  Additional experiential exercises will help participants understand the personal, interpersonal, and social dimensions of being transgender.
