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.


  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
