Peer initiatives, videos, and books
Self-determination and acceptance within a group of like-minded peers can be incredibly healing experiences, especially for those who have a history of abuse, oppression, and isolation. Some peer-led efforts are online while others provide local groups throughout the United States and much of the world. In addition to these initiatives, there are also many videos that provide support, advice, knowledge, and artistic expression in regard to promoting emotional well-being and understanding emotional distress. For those looking for a more in-depth understanding of specific phenomena or social justice issues, a list of books is provided that is by no means inclusive, but certainly a beginning.
