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.

 

FORGE has many free online tools to help survivors and those around them learn what happens in trauma both immediately and long-term, and what people can do to promote healing. Check these out:

We also have a webpage that is dedicated to survivor issues, including interviews, resource reviews, and healing tools:

Finally, FORGE offers two Facebook pages dedicated to survivors and healing.

  • facebook.com/transsurvivors is open to anyone and is dedicated to daily uplifting quotes, pictures, and memes – because what person coping with the long-term implications of trauma has too many of those?!
  • facebook.com/TransToo is a closed Facebook page designed for trans/non-binary survivors and loved ones who have experienced sexual assault or other intimate forms of violence connect with others, shared stories if they want, and exchange resources.

Take Action!
