Broadly speaking, Professor Ehman's research and clinical work focus on developing a functional contextual understanding of aggression, violence, & trauma. She is further interested in the impact of social norms on individuals' experience of and engagement in aggression and violence, as well as the impact of these norms of mental health outcomes and help-seeking behavior for victims. Professor Ehman values equity and justice and strives to ensure her teaching, research, and clinical work includes and supports individuals from historically marginalized and oppressed groups.
