New Jersey Coalition for Battered Women (More Detail)
||2:00-3:00 PM ET
|A 90-minute webinar presented by Philip McCabe, Health Educator at UMDNJ and leader of NJ Gay Health Initiative Project.
Sexual violence is any act (verbal and/or physical) which breaks a person’s trust and/or safety and is sexual in nature.Heterosexism and homo/trans phobia in our culture puts LGBTQ people at greater risk for sexual assault. It is common for perpetrators to use sexual violence as a way to punish and humiliate someone for being LGBTQ, and/or for sexual assault to be one type of violence that occurs during an anti-LGBTQ battering. Interpersonal violence can also occur between same sex domestic partners, former partners, other family members, friends, co workers and others known to the victim. Providers can benefit from understanding the difficulty for LGBTQ victims to receive services as well as what considerations can be beneficial for providing LGBTQ affirmative, trauma informed services.
As a result of this webinar participants will:
-Analyze the prevalence and consequences of sexual violence as it pertains to LGBTQ individuals.
-Describe special considerations in working with victims of same-gender violence and also individuals who identify as LGBTQ and are victims of opposite gender sexual violence.
Particpants will use GoToMeeting to join the webinar.
