Building on day one (Core Skills to Effectively Work with Transgender Survivors), the curriculum will be geared more towards advocates, therapists, other staff working at sexual assault or domestic violence-focused agencies.  Participants will gain trans-specific knowledge and skills about safety planning/harm reduction.  Content will explore gender-integrated sexual assault support groups and the benefits for all genders of survivors.  A deeper look at non-binary individuals will help attendees expand their working knowledge of a growing segment of the trans population that is disproportionately impacted by violence, including sexual assault, intimate partner violence, bullying, and hate-motivated crimes.  The day will end with participants’ increased knowledge about what they can do to better serve trans and non-binary survivors, and where they can turn for additional resources and support.
