    Abstract

    This chapter reviews qualitative empirical research that explores the impact of technology-facilitated sexual violence (TFSV) from the perspective of people with lived experience. Eighteen qualitative studies were identified from a search of the international literature. TFSV has wide-ranging implications for victims/survivors. TFSV affected psychological, social, interpersonal and economic aspects of victims/survivors’ lives. In particular, victims/survivors reported that they experienced negative health outcomes, they engaged with a range of coping strategies, and support from formal and informal networks was limited. Professionals who work with TFSV victims/survivors can use these findings to inform how they might develop support and interventions for individuals who experience TFSV. This chapter highlights limitations in the current evidence base and identifies areas for future research.
