Providing Trauma-Informed Services to Transgender Community Members
There is no cost for this training.

Training Description: Trauma-informed care is a strengths-based, client/survivor-centered approach that is grounded in an understanding of and responsiveness to the impact of trauma. "Trauma-informed" is not an approach that is limited to the physical, psychological, and emotional safety of the survivor; but to the provider also.

Transgender individuals in the United States face disproportionate levels of violence, poverty, and disenfranchisement. In this webinar we will focus on service practice that acknowledges barriers to social, economic, psychological, legal, and crisis support that trans community members face. This approach merges an anti-oppression analysis with trauma-informed care to promote outcomes that are transgender liberating.
