Dissertation Research: Intimate Partner Violence and “Bluebeard”

I am excited to share my dissertation research with Pacifica Graduate Institute for my PhD in Depth Psychology with an Emphasis in Depth Psychotherapy. You can view my defense here. I have chosen to share my defense in hopes that it will provide educational value as a keystone of the research process.

My dissertation has been published via ProQuest and is available here. The purpose for this research was to open a dialogue around intimate partner violence, the development of insight, separation, and recovery. One unexpected theme that manifested in this research was the theme of silence, which I talk about in my defense video as well as in the text of my dissertation.
