Serving Culturally Diverse Survivors with Disabilities–
Victims of sexual or domestic violence come from every race, ethnicity, and background imaginable. One of the most challenging aspects of serving survivors is ensuring that you are providing culturally competent services to all, no matter what their background. In this webinar, we will explore the complicated goal of providing culturally specific services to survivors with disabilities. It will discuss strategies for making services both culturally relevant and accessible. The webinar will take an intersectional approach to disability and culture to provide tips for service providers on how to properly address each aspect of a survivor’s needs.
