Schools out!

Thanks for a great term and have a fantastic summer!

I will not be updating the class blog over the summer as I’m not teaching. But, I’ll be back in the fall. In the meantime, I’ve started up a blog on my professional site (for those who don’t already know, I’m a sex therapist and psychotherapist, too). I’ll be posting similar, albeit more serious, content (link). Also, I’m now on Twitter, posting piles of stuff related to sexuality and mental health (link).

 

TED: Monica Lewinsky – The price of shame.

From the description:

In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.
