People with disabilities experience intimate partner violence at a higher rate than individuals living without disabilities. The likelihood of people with disabilities experiencing intimate partner violence increases with each additional marginalized identity they occupy. This webinar will review best practices for supporting survivors with disabilities who also identify as LGBTQ+. Service providers will receive training on how to support the self determination of LGBTQ+ survivors with disabilities as well as strategies for overcoming social and institutional barriers these individuals experience accessing services and healing.
