Hayden Bottoms, MA

Hayden's current research interests center around an exploration of social cognitive deficits in clinical populations, especially those individuals with schizophrenia.  Specifically, she is interested in understanding distortions in affect perception and social perception and investigating cognitive biases such as attributional style.  Of particular interest are such questions as how an individual with a clinical disorder perceives, comprehends, and explains emotional and social information and additionally how cognitive processes mediate these tendencies.  A comprehensive understanding of how an individual perceives the interpersonal world will contribute to the development of more effective assessment and more targeted therapeutic interventions.

Hayden graduated from Duke Univeristy in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a minor in Chemistry.  As an undergraduate at Duke, she worked in Dr. Elizabeth Marsh's cognitive psychology laboratory investigating errors in semantic memory.

Hayden is currently the psychology extern at the Community Transition Program at the Heather, a 15-bed psychiatric residential rehabilitation program for individuals with serious mental illness who are transitioning back into community living after long-term psychiatric hospitalization. Her previous externships have provided extensive experience in neuropsychological testing, individual therapy, and group skills training of individuals with serious mental illness.
