- Contemporary Issues in Feminist Research: Spiritual Distress & Resilience throughout the Life Course in Healing from Interpersonal Trauma
Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014, 12-12:50 p.m.
207 Monroe Hall
Interpersonal trauma may lead to spiritual distress after a person's worldview is shattered. Religious and spiritual beliefs and practices can either promote or sabotage the healthy urge to cope and make meaning of violence and abuse. Drawing from feminist theology and a life course framework, Sharon Bowland, PhD, LCSW, MPS, Associate Professor, School of Social Work will present findings about the value of reducing negative religious/spiritual coping for survivors.
- No Cinderella Story: Remembering Benderella, aka Ben S. Rae
Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014, 12-12:50 p.m.
207 Monroe Hall
Tacoma, Washington, July 1977. Benderella hurriedly left the ball with her handsome prince. But instead of marrying her, Benderella's "prince" murdered her. In this presentation, part of Transgender Day of Remembrance, Laura S. Hodgman delves into the life of one regional, "developmentally disabled," victim of transphobia-a life full with family strife, state institutionalization, hustling, and friendship.
