NSAC 2015: Transgender Bodies/Psyches: Medically Navigating (and advocating for) Trans Survivors

September 3, 2015 @ 1:45 pm - 3:15 pm

We look forward to seeing you at the 2015 National Sexual Assault Conference, September 2 – 4 in Los Angeles, CA.

Workshop Title

Transgender Bodies/Psyches: Medically Navigating (and advocating for) Trans Survivors

Workshop Description:

Navigating medical services and advocacy with transgender survivors may be uncharted territory for forensic nurses and advocates. Through expanding transgender conceptual frameworks, experiential workshop content will focus on trans-specific barriers, body geography and disconnect(s), with an emphasis on facilitating empowerment-based choices for trans survivors. Participants will leave with practical tools for improving services to transgender survivors.

Objectives:

  1. Name at least two important principles that should guide all work with trans sexual assault survivors
  2. List three possible differences of transgender bodies vs. non-transgender bodies
  3. Identify at least one way to empower transgender survivors in making positive choices in their post-assault care that encourages respect of their own body
  4. State where they can get more information, technical assistance, or support around trans SA survivors

 

Presenter:
