Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Abigail Lott is a clinical psychologist with the Emory Adult Outpatient Clinic. Dr. Lott received a BA in psychology and anthropology at Emory University. She completed her PhD at Washington University in St. Louis and then returned to Atlanta to complete her post-doctoral fellowship at Emory University.
Dr. Lott’s research focuses on understanding the long-term impact of interpersonal trauma exposure (e.g. childhood maltreatment, domestic violence) and how emotion dysregulation may serve as a pathway to the development and maintenance of trauma-related psychiatric outcomes, like posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety. Dr. Lott incorporates clinical, behavioral, physiological, and other biological measurement in her research to assist in better identifying clear mechanisms that may be targeted in treatment and improve psychiatric outcomes among traumatized individuals.
