Dr. Bogat's current research focuses on the developmental consequences of intimate partner violence (IPV) on women and young children. Along with her collaborators (Levendosky, Davidson, and von Eye), she conducted a 10 year longitudinal study of IPV beginning data collection when women were pregnant and following them and their children almost every year until the children were 10 years old. She is interested in trajectories of risk and resilience among the children. Current work (with Levendosky, Lonstein, and von Eye) explores the biological correlates of stress related to IPV and how, during pregnancy, the timing of IPV might affect infant emotion regulation early in life. Dr. Bogat has also written about person oriented methods.
