Description:

This fast-paced, 3-hour, interactive workshop will encourage attendees to expand their existing framework associated with trans language, as well as theoretical concepts and approaches to working with transgender survivors. Trans-specific research will highlight the extent and kinds of violence and trauma transgender and non-binary people experience, exploring the long-term behavioral, cognitive, and service resistance consequences. Attendees will leave with concrete and practical skills that will easily translate into what they can do to help trans survivors heal. A major emphasis will be on sharing resources for further training and support.
