Kelley Holladay PhD

Assistant Professor, University of New Mexico

Dr. Kelley Holladay, Assistant Professor of counselor education in the Department of Individual, Family, and Community Education, joined the faculty at UNM in August of 2018. Prior to this, she was in a teaching position at WMU. She received her Ph.D. in counselor education from the University of Central Florida in 2016. Her dissertation, An Investigation of the Influence of Cyber-Sexual Assault on the Experience of Emotional Dysregulation, Depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Trauma Guilt, was awarded a university fellowship along with a $1,500 grant from the Association for Assessment and Research in Counseling (AARC) Supported Scholarship Program. Dr. Holladay has spoken on this research agenda internationally, nationally, and locally. Dr. Holladay validated the term cyber-sexual assault to legitimize this experience of sexual victimization. She is currently focusing her efforts on prevention of sexual victimization (e.g., CSA and CBSA) among communities, in addition to devoting her attention towards the training of morality with technology to help prevent cyber harassment and cyber-sexual assault among youth.
