The Cycle of Abuse Illustrated Through Single Photos and Multiple Models
Statistics show that 70% of people who are abused as children will grow up into adults who will in turn abuse children. A recent awareness ad campaign by Mexican organization Save the Children shared this fact in single photographs that are both creative and difficult to stomach.

Each one uses five models showing one individual at different stages of life. In the foreground, the individual is experiencing abuse as a child. Older versions of the abused child grow up as they walk across the background of the frame, and turn into the original abuser by the time they walk a full circle.

Powerful stuff right there!
Dr Elizabeth Loftus and Dr Albert Bandura at the Midwestern Psychological Association Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL
Me and Dr Loftus at the conference! She even signed my program book! Great talk she gave on False Memory!
By the way, I went to a talk yesterday at the conference about applying to Grad School and here is a very interesting statistic: “there is a 50% acceptance rate into medical school whereas the acceptance rate for a Clinical Psych PhD program is 12%. So getting into med school is 4x easier” they said…I know yikes so motivational they were lol :/
