Join us as we feature the work of two of our talented young investigators, Dr. Joseph Beeney and Dr. Danella Hafeman, as part of our Researchers on the Rise lecture series.
Dr. Beeney’s research interests include identifying mechanisms in the development of borderline personality disorder, social cognition, and the development of identity and its relationship to emotion regulation. After earning a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Penn State University in 2013, Dr. Beeney moved to Pittsburgh where he completed WPIC’s Clinical Psychology Internship Program and conducted research as a postdoctoral school in the Department of Psychiatry’s T32 Research Training Program for Psychologists. As a member of our faculty, Dr. Beeney is studying the neurodevelopment of attachment, social function and borderline personality disorder with support from a K01 award from the National Institute of Mental Health.
Dr. Danella Hafeman’s research focuses on cognition and emotion in youth at genetic risk for bipolar disorder. She earned her MD and her PhD in epidemiology at Columbia University. She is a graduate of the psychiatry residency program at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, where she also completed clinical and research fellowships in child and adolescent psychiatry. With support from a K23 award from the National Institute of Mental Health and a Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation Fellowship award, Dr. Hafeman is investigating compensatory neural networks for the cognitive control of emotion and testing a mindfulness-based intervention to target mood lability in youth at risk for bipolar disorder.
