Trans Youth Sexual Assault Survivors: Skills for Advocates (WCSAP)
What are some of the unique considerations in working with trans and non-binary youth who have experienced sexual assault? This webinar focuses on practical skills in working with trans/gender non-binary survivors who are pre-teens and teens. Content addresses unique issues and strategies of working with both trans youth from supportive family structures and youth who do not have stable home or school environments. Topics include: barriers to accessing services, youth-specific confidentiality and privacy concerns, the role of bullying and sexual assault, polyvictimization and intersectionality that may result in other risk factors or vulnerabilities, increasing youth autonomy and agency, and the role of restrictive legislative initiatives that impact trans youth lives. Sample role plays are integrated throughout the webinar.
