Women protesting


On September 24th, the Lyda Hill Institute for Human Resilience will host a virtual symposium featuring ten contributors from around the world to discuss the diverse perspectives on sexual violence in different parts of the world. The discussion will highlight findings from research published in the September 2021 special issue of Psychology of Violence entitled, “Global perspectives on sexual violence: Understanding the experiences of marginalized populations and elucidating the role of sociocultural factors in sexual violence.”


The presenters, from a variety of backgrounds around the world, will discuss sexual violence among marginalized populations including LGBTQ+ individuals and Arab Americans. Topics will also include a discussion on sociocultural factors associated with victimization risk and recovery among survivors. This will be an informative look at the psychology of sexual violence and should be of interest to anyone working in or studying to work in the field of psychology.
