Trans-specific ACES: Factors that influence the wellbeing of trans/nonbinary survivors

Many of us are familiar with ACEs – Adverse Childhood Experiences – and how they influence the health and wellness of both youth and adults.  This webinar will explore and compare ACEs data in the general population with rates many trans/nonbinary people experience. Additional information will examine trans-specific ACEs that layer on extra challenges in childhood that have long-lasting impact throughout the lifespan. 

Tuesday, March 22nd 2pm-4pm

At the confluence of disability and trans identity and survivorship: Supporting resilience and empowerment

Trans and nonbinary people experience disproportional rates of sexual victimization and other forms of violence.  Trans people also have higher rates of disabilities than the general population.  This webinar will examine the relationship between disability, trans identity and experience, and survivorship.  Advocates and other providers will gain a broader understanding of the service and healing implications for survivors who live within these intersections.  Participants will leave with practical suggestions for improving access to services and how to better serve trans survivors living with disabilities.

Priority registration will be given to Office of Crime Victims Advocacy (OCVA) sexual assault services and prevention grantees [and Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Program (WCSAP) members]. All other registrants will be admitted on a space available basis. Registration is subject to the approval of WCSAP.
