Transpeople and Bereavement Issues

A new blog post, “How well does bereavement counselling in the UK provide for the particular needs of trans people?” (at http://www.counselling-directory.org.uk/counsellor-articles/how-well-does-bereavement-counselling-in-the-uk-provide-for-the-particular-need) gives us the opportunity to point out two other relevant resources.

One is an older FORGE Transgender Aging Network first-person article, “FTM Post-Mortem,” that has been recently reformatted and illustrated with photographs and uploaded to the FORGE website at http://forge-forward.org/wp-content/docs/FTM-post-mortem.pdf

The other is a very useful resource that we had previously missed and the blog post alerted us to.  It’s entitled “Bereavement: A guide for transsexual, tansgender people and loved ones.”  Although it was written for the UK and discusses specific UK laws, it includes advice for loved ones and coroners, etc. that would be good even if you live elsewhere.  It’s available at http://www.dh.gov.uk/prod_consum_dh/groups/dh_digitalassets/@dh/@en/documents/digitalasset/dh_074251.pdf
