Posted on May 17, 2022
This report presents the interim findings of a process evaluation of the Trauma Healing and
Resilience Initiative for Transgender Survivors of Violence (THRIV) initiative, which is designed to increase access to trauma-focused, gender-affirming therapy for transgender and gender non-binary (TGNB) survivors of interpersonal violence and trauma. This evaluation finds that, with the exception of a delayed rollout resulting first from an organizational shift and then from the COVID-19 pandemic, the program has been implemented as per the intended plan. It has exceeded its goals in terms of service and training delivery, has received high satisfaction ratings from participants, and has had profound impacts on the lives of participants.
The THRIV initiative was awarded through a competitive solicitation funded by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and managed by the CUNY Institute for State & Local Governance. It is run through the Mount Sinai Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery (CTMS). Services provided through THRIV include individual therapy, structured group therapy, and a peer support group.
