Assistant Professor of Psychology Katie Edwards has been named the Contributing Editor of the Year 2015 by the American Psychological Association (APA) for the journal “Psychology of Violence.” The honor recognizes outstanding contributions by an ad-hoc reviewer based on the quality, quantity and timeliness of reviews.

“Psychology of Violence” is a multidisciplinary research journal devoted to violence and extreme aggression, including identifying the causes of violence from a psychological framework, finding ways to prevent or reduce violence, and developing practical interventions and treatments.

Edwards’s research focuses on predictors and correlates of intimate partner violence (IPV) victimization, perpetration, and bystander intervention among adolescents and young adults; leaving processes in relationships characterized by IPV; disclosure of IPV experiences and social reactions to these disclosures; and ethics of IPV research.
