Dr Priscilla Coleman

 

Dr. Coleman is a Professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Her Ph.D. training was in Lifespan Developmental Psychology at West Virginia University, graduating in 1998. After a four year post at the University of the South in Sewanee, TN, Dr. Coleman joined the faculty at BGSU. Acknowledging that a rich understanding of the human condition is necessarily dependent on analysis of behavior from multiple perspectives and levels of analysis, her research has naturally brought her into contact with ideas and findings from diverse fields. The outlets for her nearly 50 peer-reviewed journal articles have been in various disciplines including psychology (developmental, clinical, and social areas), family studies, education, and medicine (psychiatry, general practice, obstetrics and gynecology) among others.  She is currently on the editorial boards for five international psychology and medical journals. Dr. Coleman has published more peer-reviewed articles on the mental health implications of abortion than any other researcher in the world and she frequently presents her research to audiences across the U.S. and elsewhere. In recent years she has spoken in Australia, England, Chile, Germany, Ireland, Poland, and Portugal. In the U.S., Dr. Coleman has been called to serve as an expert in several state and civil court cases, has spoken at the UN, and in 2007 she testified before U.S. Congress.


Dr Coleman will address the following:

  1. The Psychology of Abortion:  Addressing the Critical Questions to Maximise Women's Health in 2012
  2. Reproductive Outcomes and Mortality: Debunking the Myth that Abortion is Safer than Childbirth Using Existing and New Data

Gregory Hasek

Gregory Hasek is a licensed marriage and family therapist in Portland, Oregon and a professor in the graduate counseling program at George Fox University. He is also the executive director of a Christian non-profit agency called Misty Mountain Family Counseling Center. Mr. Hasek has spoken at numerous conferences and has provided training on how to understand and treat the unique symptoms of men wounded by “Lost Fatherhood” due to an abortion decision. In 2005, he organized the first ever Men’s Summit in Kansas City to specifically address how abortion impacts men. Since then he has been instrumental in helping develop the Men and Abortion Network, which is a national organization with a mission to create both awareness and healing for men who have lost a child due to abortion. He was one of the featured speakers at “Reclaiming Fatherhood,” an International Conference on Men and Abortion, which took place in San Francisco in 2007 and Chicago in 2008. He recently spoke at the Healing Vision conference in 2011, which was an international conference that brought together experts in the field of how abortion affects men and women.

 

Mr Hasek will address the following:

  1. Unmasking the Hidden Effects of Abortion on Men
  2. Attachment and the Road to Intimacy: The Healing Journey for Post Abortion Men
