@ Wisconsin International Association for Forensic Nurses annual conference

Description:   This interactive and fast-paced training will encourage participants to expand their transgender vocabulary and conceptual framework(s), specifically in how they apply to trans* and gender non-conforming 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 practical steps that will assist them in modifying existing policies and procedures, identifying and lowering barriers to service, and improving effective services to trans* survivors and loved ones.

Objectives:
1. Expand transgender vocabulary and conceptual framework

2. Deepen understanding of prevalence rates and barriers to accessing care for transgender survivors
