This lecture, which is the second in the University's "Deliberation and Debate" series, will be delivered by Dr. Jennifer Freyd of the University of Oregon.
For the past 25 years, Dr. Freyd and her students have investigated the impact of interpersonal trauma, discovering that betrayal is particularly toxic to both physical and mental health. More recently, Freyd and her students have conducted research on the impact institutional response has on individuals within universities, discovering that institutional betrayal can exacerbate the harm of sexual trauma.
In this lecture, Dr. Freyd will present these and other findings, with an eye toward steps institutions can take to address campus sexual violence, replacing institutional betrayal with institutional courage.
Dr. Freyd has published more than 190 articles and is the author of the award-winning book "Betrayal Trauma: The Logic of Forgetting Childhood Abuse," as well as "Blind to Betrayal," co-authored with Pamela J. Birrell.
In 2014, Freyd was invited twice to the U.S. White House to discuss her research on sexual assault and institutional betrayal. She has received numerous awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Society for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation.
