In this episode Courtney talks with Dr. Laura McGuire, sexologist, trauma-informed specialist, consent educator, and inclusion consultant. They talk about a controversial topic head-on – trauma-informed practices in Title IX cases – starting with the basics of what being trauma-informed means and ending with whether it is appropriate in campus cases involving sexual misconduct. Laura explains what a sexologist is, why consent is complicated, and the work she has done incorporating restorative justice in cases of sexual misconduct. She also shares interesting insight into her journey into this work and a fun fact we promise you will not see coming! If you are a Title IX Coordinator, Title IX Investigator, or a higher ed administrator, in general, this episode is for you.
