Description: The purpose of this webinar is to share insights and experiences about a unique, (psychoeducational) trauma recovery skills group for sexual/gender minorities, as well, develop a ‘community of practice’ that attends to trauma while recognizing the distinct and unique relationship that sex and gender play in our trauma processes and responses. 


  1. To explore the impact that gendered messages have on sexual/gender minorities to process and recover from trauma/PTSD;
  2. To engage participants in a review of the T.R.E.E program as an adapted model of trauma-informed/specific programming;
  3. To build new communities of practice that connects sex & gender into trauma-informed practice.
