RSVP to Eugenio Duarte (Chair):



Diana Hofshi examines predictors of implicit versus explicit homonegative bias, such as religious fundamentalism; disgust propensity and sensitivity; self-deceptive enhancement and impression management; and demographic factors such as gender, sexual orientation, and political orientation. Her findings have enormous relevance for psychoanalysts working with victims or perpetrators of anti-gay discrimination, and she will discuss these findings followed by a roundtable discussion about how they inform our psychoanalytic work.
