Addressing Sexual Violence with Institutional Courage

Jennifer Freyd, University of Oregon

Sexual violence (including sexual assault and sexual harassment) occurs frequently and can cause substantial harm. Sexual violence is often experienced in the context of an institution (such as a university); our research indicates that associated institutional behaviors can harm or help. In this presentation I will present concepts and research related to these issues: betrayal trauma theory & betrayal blindness, DARVO (Deny, Attack, & Reverse Victim & Offender; a harmful perpetrator response to disclosure), institutional betrayal, and institutional courage. I will conclude by offering concrete steps that individuals and institutions can take to respond well to disclosures and to address sexual harassment and promote institutional courage.
