Fourteen Not Forgotten: Montreal Massacre Memorial

Graduate Students

I am actively seeking new graduate students who have an interest in sexual violence interventions and other topics related to male violence against women and girls. I currently supervise four graduate students whose research focuses on technologically assisted sexual violence, women's resilience following rape during war, pornography's influence on women's sexual lives, and self-silencing following sexual violence. I prioritize working with students who have an interest in sexual violence interventions and feminist approaches to studying aspects of violence against women and/or girls. I only supervise students coming in to our Applied Social Psychology program although I often sit on the committees of students entering our clinical program.

Graduate students are given the opportunity to become a member of the interdisciplinary Health Research Centre for the Study of Violence against Women.
