We are thrilled to announce that Stella Resnick, PhD has been contacted by the Kinsey Institute Library and Special Collections Director to say that they would be honored to have her collection of books, papers, and memoranda to be a part of the Special Collections of the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University. IU is her alma mater where she graduated with a PhD in Clinical Psychology at the age of 26.
In fact, the Kinsey Institute with its Special Collections will be moving to Lindley Hall, where she spent an intense five years of her early twenties, with all the insecurities and self-doubts of a young woman embarking on a highly competitive venture. And now my life’s work in the field of sexual education and body-based sex therapy, will be housed in a place of honor in this same building.
The prior director of the Kinsey Institute is Dr. Sue Carter, Biology Professor at IU and author of the brilliant article, Love as Emotional Medicine in the IBPJ, Spring/Summer 2019 and wife of Dr. Stephen Porges, our own Research Director of USABP.
