Overview

Balsam (psychology, University of Washington) collects material on the prevalence, impact, and meaning of traumatic experiences in the lives of sexual minority women. Contributors in psychology, social work, and women's studies incorporate real-life case examples and direct quotes from women interviewed to illustrate the emotional strain these women endure, and describe constructive individual and community responses that promote resilience and healing. Some topics addressed are the impact of sexual abuse history on the coming out process, unique stressors facing African-American lesbians, and gathering data on hate crimes. This book has been co-published simultaneously as Journal of Lesbian Studies, vol. 7, no. 4, 2003. Annotation © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
