Monika Kołodziejczyk-Skrzypek, MSC

She graduated from psychology at the SWPS University of Social Sciences & Humanities. Under the supervision of Dr. Igor Pietkiewicz, she explored religious socialisation and internalised norms associated with Catholic upbringing in gay men. She analysed various coping strategies they used to resolve a conflict between religious and sexual identities. Subsequently, she co-authored a paper in prestigious academic journal Archives of Sexual Behavior.
