April 30, 2014 - IAS faculty member Lauren Lichty presented, in collaboration with colleagues from Portland State University and Oregon Public Health, new research at the annual Adolescent Sexuality Conference.  In a session titled “Is It Rape?  How Youth Make Sense of Unwanted Sex Involving Alcohol,” she presented findings from youth focus group discussions of sexual assault scenarios and facilitated a workshop with researchers, practitioners, and youth to identify strategies for addressing alcohol-related rape culture and rape myth acceptance. The conference was written up in The Oregonian and sparked a polite protest outside the convention center.  Lichty also published a co-authored paper, “Leadership through a Youth Lens: Understanding Youth Conceptualizations of Leadership,” in the Journal of Community Psychology.
