Description: 

This fast-paced webinar is designed to assist victim service providers in better serving transgender survivors of sexual assault and other forms of violence.  Many providers are committed to serving transgender clients, but seek additional information in order to provide more competent and sensitive services.  This webinar will primarily focus on basic transgender concepts, but will include references and examples specific to victim service providers.  The components covered will 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.  Pre-webinar worksheets will help guide participants during the webinar.  Ample time for questions and answers will help solidify materials learned.

Description: 

This 90-minute webinar will be the last in a series of seven webinars designed to support Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), grantees working with immigrant survivors of violence. This webinar builds on a previous broadcast “Trauma-Informed Care: Promoting Healing While Strengthening Survivors’ Immigration Case”, which introduced the process of immigration story writing intervention – a unique technique that couples (1) a trauma-focused writing exercise, shown to reduce the psychological impact of trauma exposure, with (2) a record of the survivor’s experience of domestic violence, sexual abuse, or other qualifying traumatic event that enhances the survivor’s evidence-based immigration relief application. All registrants should review Part I prior to the second broadcast. In this sequel,  presenters will offer a tested and trauma sensitive tool, helpful resources, and effective strategies to facilitate the immigration story writing intervention. The focus will be on helping advocates obtain in-depth details from survivors, identify patterns of coercive control, and promote healing as they build stronger immigration relief applications. This is an interactive webinar in which attendees will be encouraged to participate and ask questions. Participants are encouraged to review the previous webinar on Trauma Informed Care Part I available at http://niwaplibrary.wcl.american.edu/reference/additional-materials/iwp-training-powerpoints/webinar-5-trauma-informed-care for background and details about victim based immigration remedies.   If you need help with your webinar registration or have any technical questions, please contact Levi Wolberg at (202)274-4190.
