Sexual Abuse and Truth-Telling: Institutions Under the Spotlight

Seminar event on sexual abuse and institutional responses to sexual violence.

INCORE invites you to this public seminar, presented by Dr. Carolyn Stauffer from Eastern Mennonite University.

This presentation explores institutional responses to sexual harm, investigating collective logics of denial, minimization, negligence and complicity. Highlighting leading practices that mitigate these abuses of power we probe what institutional truth-telling could look like, comparing complexities that emerge in a variety of international settings.

Dr. Carolyn Stauffer is a consultant and educator in the fields of sexual trauma and domestic violence and has conducted training across three continents. Stauffer served as the co-director of EMU’s Biomedicine program and is currently Associate Professor of Applied Social Sciences in Virginia, USA, teaching on the graduate and undergraduate levels. Stauffer has trained SART (sexual assault response) teams, DOJ (Dept. of Justice) personnel, campus Title IX officers and various branches of safety and security personnel. She has lived and worked in the Middle East (15 years), Africa (16 years) and has been the primary investigator of two competitive grants. She has served on boards related to HIV/AIDs work, the homeless, and on the local chapter of UNESCO’s Education for Sustainable Development initiative. Stauffer has 25 years of practice experience in the sexual violence field, with a focus on enhancing survivor resilience through a strengths-based approach.
