Dr Stephanie Kors is a postdoctoral and clinical fellow at Harvard Medical School and Cambridge Health Alliance. Her primary research interests are at the intersection of developmental psychopathology, psychotherapy, and public health. She is particularly interested in understanding barriers that patients with trauma histories face when navigating healthcare systems. She has studied access and implementation barriers to effective trauma-informed care in both mental health settings and medical settings.
Individuals who have experienced trauma can face unique challenges accessing appropriate services in healthcare settings, leading to worse health outcomes. These barriers can include difficulty trusting medical providers, stigmatization of comorbid disorders, and lack of provider knowledge about the intersection of mental and physical health, among others.
This presentation summarizes the work of two studies, one which examines the role of early trauma in the development of opioid addiction in pregnancy and one which examines the dose-response effect in long-term psychotherapy for patients with complex trauma.
