Nick Haslam - Concept Creep

From Sunday Morning, 10:35 am on 8 May 2016

From trigger warnings to claims of cyber bullying to demands that university campuses ban disagreeable voices … the concepts of trauma and abuse now encompass a much broader range than ever before. Nick Haslam, professor of psychology at the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences, joins Wallace to talk about the notion of 'Concept Creep' and how it could have damaging effects on our society.
