A reading list for learning about healthy and unhealthy relationships and how to recover from trauma

The first section of the reading list details places to go for help and resources for support. Please note that this reading list is not meant to be a substitute for counselling, and there is help available from the Abertay University Counselling and Mental Health Services and other organisations outside of Abertay.

This reading list is meant to be a useful tool and provide helpful information for yourself or a loved one. There is information on trauma and recovery, sexual assault, what unhealthy relationships look like and how to get out of one. Unhealthy relationships can manifest in many ways, and don't always include physical violence. If this is a topic you're interested in for absolutely any reason whatsoever, take a look at what we have.

This reading list was funded by Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) and was curated in consultation with: Rape Crisis Scotland (RCS), Equally Safe in Higher Education (ESHE), Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (WRASAC), EmilyTest, Dundee Women’s Aid, and Amina Dundee.
