Dr. Sullivan's program of research focuses on understanding the relationships among IPV, posttraumatic stress, and substance use. She is actively involved in research examining (a) precursors, correlates, and outcomes of women's victimization and their use of aggression in intimate relationships, and (b) the co-occurrence of IPV, posttraumatic stress, and substance use with specific attention to daily processes and intensive longitudinal data. She is particularly interested in risk and protective factor research that informs the development of interventions to be implemented in community settings.
