This award recognizes Hannah L. Schacter, PhD, an individual who has made exemplary scholarly contributions to the field of bullying abuse prevention and conducted research that has the potential to influence practice and policy.
Hannah Schacter is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Wayne State University and an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute for Child and Family Development. Her research broadly examines adolescent social-emotional development and health, with a specific focus on understanding when, why, and how peer relationships shape adolescents’ adjustment. Much of her work centers around the experiences of bullied youth, aiming to identify modifiable contextual, interpersonal, and intrapersonal factors that 1) elevate risk for peer victimization; 2) serve as mechanisms linking peer victimization to health problems; and 3) protect victimized youth from maladjustment. In doing so, her work seeks to provide insights into malleable targets for interventions aimed at reducing bullying and alleviating victims’ suffering.
