Jamison S. Bottomley, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist and Assistant Professor at the National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center (NCVC), Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). Following the completion of his graduate training at The University of Memphis and predoctoral internship at the Charleston Consortium, Dr. Bottomley completed a two-year NIMH postdoctoral fellowship in traumatic stress studies at the NCVC. Dr. Bottomley’s program of research centers around the study of traumatic loss (i.e., bereavement following sudden, violent, or volitional causes of death), including the impact of social stressors and substance use on health outcomes secondary to traumatic loss. Dr. Bottomley has additional interest in the study of psychological interventions for traumatic loss and the impact of mass violence on individuals and communities. His program of research has been generously supported by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD). In his spare time, Dr. Bottomley enjoys all things outdoors, but he especially loves spending time on the beach or in the ocean with his wife and son.
