Tiffany Jones is Associate Professor and ARC DECRA Fellow at Macquarie and La Trobe universities, Australia.

Until now, practical guidance for educators, counsellors and health

strategies to do no harm and be of real service to this vulnerable
group. -- Alison Rahn PhD, Sex Therapist, Adjunct Research Fellow,
