HuffPo Story on Trigger Warnings Cites Derald Sue's Work on Micro-aggressions 

Derald Wing Sue, Professor of Psychology and Education and an expert on micro-aggressions, is quoted in a Huffington Post op-ed about "trigger warnings" on college campuses:  "Sue and other researchers point to studies that suggest people suffer psychological harm from repeated affronts," write Barry Glassner, president and a professor of sociology at Lewis & Clark College; and Morton Schapiro, president and a professor of economics at Northwestern University. "And we've both heard from counseling staff about students who were victims of sexual and other abuse who experienced setbacks after being exposed to course materials without having been given an opportunity to prepare themselves psychologically."
