Day 7 – Accessing healing resources
Access (or help a trans survivor access) healing resources.
People who have been the victims of a crime are more likely to experience more crimes. That fact makes healing trauma a prevention measure: healing can help you learn about safer behaviors and environments.
Some of the first actions you can take:
- Download FORGE’s “Self-Help Guide” for transgender survivors of sexual (and other forms) of violence: http://forge-forward.org/wp-content/docs/self-help-guide-to-healing-2015-FINAL.pdf
- Download FORGE’s “Let’s Talk About It: A Transgender Survivor’s Guide to Accessing Therapy”: http://forge-forward.org/wp-content/docs/Lets-Talk-Therapist-Guide.pdf
- Locate a trans-friendly anti-violence agency. LGBTQ anti-violence agencies work to prevent and respond to violence experienced by LGBTQ and HIV-affected individuals. They are the portal to trans-savvy advocacy, support, and services. Find the one nearest you and keep their number handy in case you or someone you know can use it. ncavp.org
