SASP National Forum

July 20, 2011 - July 21, 2011

Sexual Assault Services Program National Forum (SASP Forum), sponsored by the Resource Sharing Project.  This forum will provide an exciting opportunity for state and territorial coalitions along with two local rape crisis center/ sexual assault service programs from each state and territory to share and showcase sexual assault service practices from across the country!

Title: Transgender Survivors: Understanding, Serving, Empowering

Presenters: Michael Munson (FORGE) and Bobbi Gagne (Sexual Assault Crisis Team, VT)

Description: This interactive and fast-paced session will stimulate participants to expand their transgender vocabulary and conceptual framework(s), specifically in how they apply to transgender sexual assault survivors and support structures.  Attendees will learn about the progressive work of FORGE’s transgender anti-violence program (national) and the Sexual Assault Crisis Team (Vermont).  Topics will include prevalence rates, barriers to accessing services, and unique issues facing transgender 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 transgender survivors and loved ones.

Please list three learning objectives for the session:

By the end of this session, participants will have

  1. an expanded transgender vocabulary and conceptual framework
  2. a deepened understanding of prevalence rates and barriers to accessing care for transgender survivors
  3. the ability to list at least three ways of improving service delivery to transgender survivors
