Using Research to Address Trauma and Violence

We are a community-engaged, feminist, anti-racist research team committed to intersectional research that disrupts gender-based violence and other forms of oppression. 

Living up to these values is a goal and a process for all members of our team, and leads to better trauma science. For example, collaborating with community partners enables our team to be part of addressing questions of public concern from public perspectives for impact.

Across these pages, we invite you meet our team members and collaborators as well as read about current research and access full-text publications. As you will see, we pursue several lines of research with both youth and adults on the causes and consequences of trauma, violence, and abuse. Further, we apply our basic research findings to intervention and prevention work. Our research draws on multiple methodologies (e.g., cognitive tasks, clinical interviews, survey methodology) as well as theories from diverse psychological perspectives to address both basic and intervention questions.

The Traumatic Stress Studies (TSS) Group, directed by Anne P. DePrince, PhD., is part of the Psychology Department at the University of Denver.
