Human Development Initiative

HDI Logo

The Human Development Initiative, begun in 2009, is a community of scholars throughout the university interested in development across the lifespan. The initiative creates venues where scholars involved in cutting-edge research in the social and health sciences (including genetics, neuroscience, and psychosocial development) can focus on the intersections between their own work and that of other researchers. We invite faculty and graduate students to join us at our bi-weekly brown bag speaker series and our fall and spring colloquia.

Research Statement

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 an 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 trauma related to IPV and how, during pregnancy, factors such as cortisol might affect development pre and postnatally.

Dr. Bogat has also written about person oriented methods and she is working on a practical guide to assessment with Dr. Hopwood.
