Charlotte Heleniak, a graduate student in the Stress and Development Lab, receives her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Washington. Her dissertation was entitled "Interpersonal Violence Exposure, Social Cognition, and Aggression." Charlotte's dissertation identified social cognitive factors, as well as differences in the neural networks that underlie social cognition, that are involved in explaining the link between violence exposure in childhood and aggressive behavior in adolescence. Congratulations to Charlotte, who is moving on to a post-doc in Nim Tottenham's lab at Columbia University!
