Research Interests

Caitlyn received her B.S. in psychology from the College of Charleston in 2014 where she completed a bachelor's essay examining the impact of family factors and mental health on risk-taking behaviors among college students. Caitlyn also volunteered as a victim advocate at the local rape crisis center in Charleston, which sparked her interest in examining the relationship between interpersonal violence and traumatic stress. In the fall of 2016, Caitlyn joined the clinical psychology doctoral program at the University of Kentucky. Caitlyn’s research interests include evaluating the long-term mental and physical health effects of traumatic stress, particularly in the context of interpersonal violence experiences.  She is currently leading a study aimed at evaluating pain experiences among trauma-exposed women with and without PTSD.
