Tuesday, December 12, 2017 2:00:00 PM EST - 3:30:00 PM EST

Male survivors face unique obstacles when trying to access sexual assault and domestic violence services. When the survivor also has a disability or is Deaf, the barriers are compounded, making it even more difficult to access services. This webinar will provide service providers with insight into the victimization of men with disabilities, explore the unique barriers that male survivors with disabilities face when trying to access services, address some unanswered questions and gaps that need further study, and provide recommendations for better serving male survivors with disabilities and Deaf male survivors.
