Amy Marshall is interested in social information processing deficits and contextual variables that contribute to the perpetration of intimate partner violence. Social and cognitive science methodologies are used to identify information processing deficits underlying associations between aggression perpetration and personality variables (particularly psychopathy and borderline/dependent personality characteristics), as well as posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms. Emotion recognition skills, and methods of studying such skills in context, are of particular interest. Current work also aims to differentiate variables that contribute to male and female perpetration of intimate partner violence from variables that contribute to aggression in non-intimate relationships.
