RadioActive is an hour long talk show hosted by Natalie Kivell, a Ph.D. candidate in Community Well-Being at the University of Miami. Each week Natalie interviews academics and/or activists from around the world who dive into critical discussions from a Community Psychology lens aimed specifically at addressing structural inequality and the root causes of our complex social problems. The show aims to provoke listeners to think differently about social change and social justice to help shift how we think, act and react to social change efforts in our research and practice.
RadioActive airs every Sunday at 6pm on wvum.org out of the University of Miami student radio station.
Dr. Tracy Hipp is a Community Psychology graduate from Georgia State University who has focused her research on developing an understanding of the experiences of sexual violence of non-heterosexual and non gender conforming women through the inclusion of their often excluded voices.
She joined me, Natalie Kivell, to discuss her research and her emerging work on the experiences of bi-sexual women who face an unimaginable rate of 75% experiencing some form of sexual violence. With a dearth of research on this overlooked group of women, Dr. Hipp brought to the forefront the importance of this issue for parents, researchers, all women, and service providers in our communities.
