Let's Talk About It! A Transgender Survivor's Guide to Accessing Therapy

General Material
Published Date
May, 2015

While many transgender people see individual therapists, choosing and working with a therapist can be more complex for the half of transgender people who are also sexual assault survivors. This 107-page guide addresses many of the specific questions trans survivors ask: how to decide if therapy is right for you and, if it is, how to choose the best type of therapy for you, and how to find referrals and choose a therapist. The guide also discusses trans-specific survivor issues such as dealing with Standards of Care issues; addressing shame and body image/dysphoria issues; and navigating sex-segregated services.
