The Spring 2021 semester is co-sponsored by the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department (http://wgss.uconn.edu).
Today's lecture is entitled, "Trans/Non-binary survivors in the whirlwind of a triple pandemic: Resistance and Resilience" and will be presented by michael munson (he/they/any).
Synopsis: The existence of trans and non-binary survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking is not new. Cultural changes over the past several years have added layers of complication, challenge, as well as renewed commitment to shifting the gender-presumptive paradigms, reducing barriers to accessing care and services, and enhancing circles support and embodied resilience. Content will focus on:
* Trans-specific statistics on victimization and harm
* Trans-specific ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences)
* The implications of the triple pandemic
* Barriers to accessing services
* Practical steps anyone can take to improve the lives of trans and non-binary survivors
Biography: michael munson is the Executive Director of FORGE, an organization focused on improving the lives of trans and non-binary individuals by building stronger connections, providing resources, and empowering growth through knowledge. FORGE is a national training and technical assistance provider funded through the Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women and the Office for Victims of Crime. Munson’s educational background is in psychology, with an emphasis on trauma-informed care and non-traditional healing modalities. His work on violence against trans and non-binary individuals stresses the intersectionality between complex components of identity, experience, and societal constructs that can both spur violence, as well as catalyze healing for individuals and communities. He is passionate about engaging professionals to embrace these complexities and learn key skills to better serve their clients/constituents.
