Office Location


Dr. Christine Tirabassi Hahn conducts research focused on the reduction of substance use and traumatic stress following recent exposure to sexual assault and intimate partner violence. Her translational program of research utilizes novel, brief, technology-based interventions integrated in primary care and community-based agencies (e.g., rape crisis centers) to increase access to services. Dr. Hahn also investigates the role of emotional and behavioral regulation on traumatic stress, sexual risk taking, and substance use among people who have experienced sexual assault. Finally, her interests include the intersection of traumatic stress and women's reproductive health. Dr. Hahn's early career development at MUSC has been supported through NIH funding (e.g., NIAAA, NIDA, NIMH). After completing a NIMH T32 postdoctoral fellowship at MUSC, Dr. Hahn was a career enhancement scholar through MUSC's Specialized Center of Research Excellence (SCORE) on stress-related sex and gender differences. Dr. Hahn was recently awarded a Career Development Award from NIAAA to test an early intervention for posttraumatic stress disorder and alcohol use disorder following sexual assault. Dr. Hahn is the director of the sexual assault follow-up services at the National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center. She provides clinical supervision and research mentorship to psychology interns and postdoctoral fellows.
