Bio/Research

Linda M. Woolf is a Professor of Psychology and International Human Rights at Webster University where she teaches a variety of courses related to the Holocaust, genocide, human rights, terrorism, torture, ethics, and peace psychology. Recent articles, book chapters, and presentations focus on hate groups, torture, LGBT and women’s rights, psychosocial roots of genocide and terrorism, and diversity issues (e.g., Psychosocial Roots of Genocide: Risk, Prevention, and Intervention; Psychologists, Coercive Interrogations, and Torture; and Why Diversity Matters: The Power of Inclusion in Research Methods). Although her primary research concerns the psychosocial roots of torture, mass violence, and genocide, Woolf also works extensively towards the integration of human rights and genocide/Holocaust education across the university curriculum and has developed curriculum materials available through the Society for Teaching of Psychology and the American Sociological Association. Woolf is Past-President of the Society for the Study of Peace, Conflict, and Violence, an Institute for the Study of Genocide Board Member, and serves on the Rafael Lemkin Book Award Committee. Woolf also co-drafted the APA American Psychological Association 2006 Resolution Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment or Punishment and chaired the Task Force, which developed the 2013 Policy Related to Psychologists' Work in National Security Settings and Reaffirmation of the APA Position Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. Woolf received her undergraduate degree from Webster University and has both an MS and a PhD from Saint Louis University.
