Erchull and Liss Publish Paper with Former Student

Dr. Mindy Erchull and Dr. Miriam Liss, along with a former student Stephanie Lichiello, recently had a paper titled “Extending the Negative Consequences of Media Internalization and Self-Objectification to Dissociation and Self-Harm” published in the October online first edition of the journal Sex Roles. Our findings suggest that self-harm and dissociation, both outcomes associated with the literature on trauma, are related to self-objectification and media internalization. We suggested that objectification could be considered a form of insidious trauma or microaggression.
