Next Up on 13: Why Are Some Veterans More Impacted by PTSD Than Others?

Back to All Stories

On this episode of 13, Charles A. Dana Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences Rebecca Shiner and two of her former students — Peter Tappenden ’18 and Fanyi Mo ’20 — talk about their research that was recently published in the Journal of Traumatic Stress, titled, “Narrating life in the military: Links between veterans’ narrative processing of service experiences and their posttraumatic stress symptoms and well-being.”

A trained clinical psychologist, Shiner’s research lies at the intersection of personality, clinical, and developmental psychology. Shiner predominantly focuses on studying personality development in childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood, and she has written extensively on the assessment, causes, and consequences of personality disorders in youth. Shiner earned her bachelor’s degree from Haverford College and her PhD from the University of Minnesota.
