I received my Ph.D. degree in 2015 in Psychological Counseling and Guidance from Middle East Technical University in Ankara with a research focus on psychological dating aggression. My dissertation was a quantitative study that examined college students’ experiences with psychological aggression perpetration and their relations to societal, parental and personal variables. Currently, I work as an assistant professor at MEF University. My research focuses primarily on gender issues, dating violence, psychological aggression, dating infidelity, attachment theory, LBG identity development, subjective wellbeing of LGBs, training of mental health professionals related to dating violence prevention and issues and challenges in working with LGBs. I also act as a women’s and LGBTI rights activist.
