Although millions of Americans experience sexual violence each year, research indicates many are hesitant to disclose this experience in clinical settings unless directly asked. To provide quality mental health care for adult survivors, it is essential clinicians are equipped to sensitively and efficiently assess sexual trauma in women, men, and people who are transgender.

This workshop will review our current state of knowledge regarding key clinical issues and barriers to disclosure of sexual trauma across genders. General best practice guidelines for clinically assessing sexual trauma will be discussed including how to create a supportive environment, provide a clear rationale for the assessment process, and effectively respond to such disclosures. Common challenges to trauma-informed assessment will be addressed as well.

General Admission: $60**

Class size is limited to 45.
