"50 Shades of Grey: A Look at Love, Deception and Abuse" with Amy Bonomi benefiting Crime Stoppers of Houston
Join for a breakfast with Amy Bonomi, professor and chair of Human Development and Family Studies at Michigan State University. Bonomi's research concentrates on the long-term health effects of domestic violence, and the intimacy dynamics that keep violent relationships intact.
Recently, Bonomi and colleagues analyzed abuse in the national bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey, using the U.S. Centers for Disease Control's definitions of intimate partner violence, and then published a second study showing violence victimization and associated health risks in young women readers of the Fifty Shades series. Bonomi writes a violence prevention blog for the Huffington Post and her research has been featured in USA Today, MSNBC, Washington Post, Cosmopolitan and other major media outlets.
