Sexual Victimization of the Transgender Population
by Fraine, Shawn M., M.A., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2018, 51; 10750694
Abstract (Summary)

This study examined sexual victimization, resilience, and revictimization in the transgender community. Participants were recruited nationally through targeted Facebook advertising. This study observed that transgender participants were more likely to experience victimization and revictimization when compared to cisgender participants. It was also observed that transgender participants had more positive attitudes toward help-seeking but scored lower on a resilience scale than cisgender and sexual minorities. Implications will be discussed.
