BSC Talking Points – Jessica Eaton, victim blaming in sexual assault. 

Each month the BSC postgraduate community hold a talking points session on Facebook. Here we or a guest contributor pick a topic to discuss live on-line, in our facebook group, for an hour.

This months BSC TALKING POINT is brought to us by Jessica Eaton. She will be discussing victim blaming in sexual assault. Jessica is from Birmingham University and is in the first year of her Forensic Psychology PhD.

Jessica is also the national training manager for JustWhistle and Chairperson and Founder of The Eaton Foundation (first male mental health centre in the UK).
