Transgender Survivors of Sexual and Domestic Violence: Core Information for Campus-Based Coordinated Community Response Teams (UCDenver)

June 26, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

[A webinar for UC Denver – Campus Technical Assistance and Resource Project]

 

Webinar Description:

This fast-paced webinar is designed to assist campus-based Coordinated Community Response Teams (CCRTs) in better serving transgender survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking.. Many campuses are committed to nurturing an inclusive campus community, but seek additional information to provide more competent prevention programs and response services for transgender and non-binary students and survivors. This webinar will primarily focus on basic transgender concepts, but will include content specifically geared towards CCRTs on college campuses.  Trans-specific sexual assault and intimate partner violence resources will be included, so CCRT’s can provide this information to the transgender survivors they work with, as well as to improve their repertoire of knowledge as victim service providers.  All participants will be equipped with at least 5 free and easy things they can do to create services and environments that are more trans-welcoming and trans-supportive.

Learning outcomes:

  1. List three areas where campus-based CCRTs can make small changes to improve access to transgender survivors.
  2. State at least one statistic discussed in the webinar about the rates of violence within the transgender community.
  3. State two resources where campus CCRT members and other allied professionals can learn more about better serving transgender survivors.
