Please join us for a training on understanding and working with LGBTQ survivors of intimate partner violence. We will spend the first half of the presentation reviewing common terminology used in LGBTQ communities and unpacking commonly misunderstood concepts related to sex, gender, and sexual orientation. The second half will address issues specific to working with LGBTQ survivors including unique challenges in assessment and possible interventions. The training will employ multiple learning methods including presentation, videos, infographics, vignettes, and small group practice/discussion.
Free of Charge but taking registration. Space is limited to 35. Training will be facilitated by Sarah Murray from DCRC.
