Outside the Boxes: Working with Gender Non-binary Survivors (Futures)

September 28 @ 9:50 am - 12:10 pm

A workshop at the National Conference on Health and Domestic Violence

Workshop description:

We all know thinking outside of the box is critical for providers working with survivors.  When survivors live and identify outside of the culturally defined male and female gender boxes, it is even more important for providers to be adaptive, creative, and knowledgeable about how to best work with non-binary clients. Content will include a highlight of navigating sex-segregated or sex-specific systems, as well as exploring traditional and more holistic wellness options for healing.

Objectives:

  1. Describe a gender identity that is not male or female.
  2. State two types of health/wellness modalities that are often useful to survivors of domestic/sexual violence that frequently are approached in a gendered or binary-gendered way.
  3. Articulate at least one way you can create a more welcoming environment to non-binary survivors.
