Dr. Abigail Batchelder’s research focuses on the psychosocial underpinnings of health behaviors among underserved and marginalized populations. She is interested in developing interventions to address the unmet needs of individuals living with co-occurring physical and psycholosocial problems, or syndemics, that perpetuate health disparities (e.g., HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, diabetes, substance abuse and distress). Based on prior quantitative and qualitative work, she is interested in how self-conscious emotions relate to health behaviors within the context of stigmatized identities. Abigail aims to leverage her behavioral medicine and clinical psychology training to pursue multicomponent interventions that address unmet needs and foster modifiable precursors of resilience (e.g., emotional regulation, effective coping and self worth).
