Beyond The Binary: Skills for Working with Trans DV/SA Survivors – Billings, MT

May 19, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Are you ready for a full day of interactive, fast-paced, thought-provoking, research-based training focused on how to better serve transgender survivors of violence?

By the end of the day, you will have an expanded vernacular and conceptual framework, specifically in how they apply to transgender, gender non-conforming, and gender non-binary sexual and domestic violence survivors.  You will increase your ability to fluidly and respectfully interact with and serve trans survivors and loved ones through engaging exercises, discussions, and concrete skills-building.   This day-long training promises you will leave with a new level of understanding of how to better work with trans clients, as well as specific action steps to help your agency sensitively and effectively serve trans survivors and loved ones.

An overview of topics to be covered include:

  • Trans basics & core concepts
  • Data implications and intersectionality
  • Multiple dynamic case examples
  • A cultural competency checklist
