Transgender Sexual Violence Survivors: A Self-Help Guide to Healing and Understanding is a substantial document that includes information about the prevalence of sexual violence against transgender/gender non-conforming individuals; lists common long- and short-term responses to trauma; addresses the question of whether there is a relationship between sexual assault and gender identity issues; discusses issues associated with WPATH Standards of Care and Informed Consent models as they relate to sexual assault survivors and how their gender identity issues are assessed; describes the typical set of services available to sexual violence survivors in their own communities, including how transgender survivors can advocate for their inclusion and/or respectful treatment within such services; provides recommended reading and resource lists of self-help books, websites, and listservs, with annotations describing how well they address transgender survivors and SOFFAs and their issues; and gives quotations from other transgender sexual violence survivors.
