Transgender 101 for Victim Service Providers
This fast-paced webinar is designed to assist victim service providers in better serving transgender survivors of sexual assault and other forms of violence. This webinar primarily focuses on basic transgender concepts, but also includes references and examples specific to victim service providers. The components covered include:
1) discussing the diversity under the “transgender umbrella”
2) exploring social, medical, legal, and other options transgender people may pursue
3) stimulating thought about which components of a transgender person’s life might (or might not be) relevant to the roles crime victim professionals play, and
4) disseminating resources to support transgender crime victims and the professionals who serve them.
