Empathy and Etiology: Understanding the Role of Social Perception in the Development of Internalizing and Externalizing Behavioral Disorders

Hometown: Acton, Massachusetts 

Department: Psychological Sciences

Advisor: Elizabeth Raposa


While deficits in social perception are known to impact mental health, few studies have examined their role in the development of specific disorders. My Honors Thesis will investigate differences in social perception between adolescents with internalizing and externalizing behavioral disorders. This research will help to identify risk factors for a range of disorders, ultimately helping to improve early detection efforts and elucidate new targets for cognitive intervention and treatment.
