This workshop will explore the ethical issues in working with LGBTQ survivors of Intimate Partner Violence.  Survivors of IPV/DV often face disbelief and discrimination from systems that may be their only option in seeking safety.  This is especially true for LGBTQ survivors.  This workshop will include assessment tools, trauma-informed interventions, safety planning and resources.  Participants are encouraged to share their expertise in their work with LGBTQ survivors.
