Sexual Socialization, Reproductive Health Attitudes, Body Image Development
Since I began teaching Psychology of Women and “The Psychology and Culture of Pregnancy Childbirth and Motherhood”, I have become interested in doing research concerning women's body image and reproductive health attitudes. During the last few years I have been collaborating with Monique Ward and Allison Caruthers to collect data on over 1,500 colleges students examining the intersection of body image, sexual socialization, reproductive health and media influences. More recently, in collaboration with Justin Garcia, we have looked at evolutionary explanations for sexual attitudes and behaviors in college students.
