The Psychology Department would like to recognize student researcher K. Alexis Nagle & Dr. Stacy Freiheit (faculty sponsor) for their award-winning scholarship entitled “Ripples of Trauma: Perceptions of Guilt by Family and Friends of Sexual Assault Survivors”. This research involved a total of 706 adults who responded to a nationwide survey examining the impact of gender and survivor/perpetrator relationship on the guilt felt by supporters of sexual assault survivors. Results indicated that friends were more likely to feel guilt than parents, and parents felt more guilt if the survivor was a daughter. Congratulations on this important work!
