My name is Arthur Hatton and I’m a doctoral student in clinical psychology, podcast producer, and songwriter. I also work as a behavioral research consultant, doing technical write-ups for the presentation of scientific material as well as invited lectures on my areas of expertise.
I received a B. S. in Psychology with a minor in Islamic Studies in 2009.
I received a M.S. in Psychology (Experimental) in 2011 and a M.S. in Psychology (Clinical) in 2016. I expect to receive my Doctor of Psychology degree (Psy.D.) from Georgia Southern University in 2018.
My main areas of interest are in the psychology of politics and religion. Since 2011 I have studied American public support for national security policies that specifically target Muslims (e.g., random searches of Muslims based on religion and/or ethnicity, banning Syrian refugees from entering the United States). I have examined a number of factors that may influence support for these policies, such as psychological inflexibility, religious coping, and exposure to ISIS propaganda. For more information on my research, please consult my page on ResearchGate where it is updated regularly.
I am also a songwriter and have written and performed music in a band setting, in a solo setting, and for a short film.
