Our research aims to:

(i) identify risk factors for adverse outcomes following interpersonal trauma exposure

(ii) investigate how trauma survivors' interactions with various social service systems (i.e., healthcare, criminal justice) influence their health and future engagement, and

(iii) improve systemic responses to trauma via the adoption and evaluation of trauma-informed care.
