Intersectionality, Disability and Victimization
This webinar provided an overview on supporting survivors with disabilities in an intersectional manner. We discussed recognizing the wide-spread nature of trauma and its effects, which can, in and of itself, cause disability, understanding the potential avenues for recovery and healing, which may or may not include a person’s support team, and being able to identify signs and symptoms of trauma in persons served, particularly those who do not and/or have limited ability to communicate verbally. We addressed a complete integration of trauma-related knowledge and information inclusive of disability into policies, settings, practices and procedures. Furthermore, the webinar discussed barriers implicit bias presents to service delivery in a trauma-informed manner, and exacerbation of harm, particularly when the person served is multiply-marginalized.
