Jessica Bowen

Undergraduate Student

Currently, Jessica is collaborating with with a PhD student in the Attachment and Attraction Lab, where they are investigating attachment styles in people suffering from autoimmune diseases.  In sum, they expect to find that a relationship exists between insecure attachments and having an autoimmune disease, as well as evidence of increased anxiety and avoidance levels while symptomatic.  Moreover, they expect to see insecure attachments exacerbated when romantic relationships are not supportive of the person when they are symptomatic.
