Marie Karlsson, Ph.D.
I am interested in individuals’ experiences with trauma and interpersonal violence.
For instance, I study factors that impact the connection between childhood exposure
to violence, such as witnessing interparental abuse, and exposure to dating violence
as a teenager and adult. What are some of the risk and protective factors between
generations and across relationships? Although my main focus is to understand the
experiences of victims, I also study the associations between victimization and perpetration
(e.g., bi-directional or mutually abusive relationships).
