Transgender people face disproportionate levels of violence. First responders must be prepared to provide trauma-informed care to transgender victims. This workshop is designed as an interactive opportunity to discuss and better understand transgender and nonbinary gender identities. Participants will learn about language and vocabulary, interpersonal etiquette, and some of the unique ways that people from these communities experience violence and sexual violence. The information and activities will introduce (or review) some basics as well as more deeply engage with matters concerning trans and nonbinary folks.
This workshop will take place on Monday, March 1, 2021 from 8:30 am – 12:00 pm. Visit TRAIN PA to register.
