Assistant Professor, Clinical Psychology - Clinic Director


B.S. (2006) in Cognitive Neuroscience (Biology, Psychology), University of Denver
M.S. (2007) and Ph.D. (2012) in Clinical Psychology (Behavioral Medicine, Quantitative Methods), Oklahoma State University

Research Interests

My research interests span the fields/subfields of health psychology, developmental psychobiology, and neuroscience. Our current interdisciplinary research projects include examination of maternal stress and related disorders and health indicators/behaviors during pregnancy that program offspring risk for developmental and health difficulties. Additionally, we are investigating parenting factors in relation to child development, social factors that influence responses to health messages, and neurocognitive assessment and treatment issues in samples of individuals with infectious diseases (e.g., HIV and Hepatitis C).

My clinical and teaching interests broadly include assessment (cognitive, behavioral, and personality) and provision of behavioral health interventions. I am also interested in quantitative methods and training in Clinical Psychology.

Research Interests

My research program examines the development of coordinated action during early ontogeny. This work involves experimental investigation of the role of neurobiological mechanisms, sensory feedback, and experience in the modulation of motor behavior. Currently, my lab is examining 1.) how locomotor behavior in the rat is controlled by the spinal cord and is shaped by sensorimotor experience, 2.) the relationship between the development of weight-bearing locomotion and development of the musculoskeletal system in rats, 3.) the relationship between the development of locomotor behavior and epigenetic activity in the spinal cord in rats, and 4.) how posture and locomotion development in human infants relates to development in other domains (language development, socioemotional development) in the context of mother-infant reciprocity. My research has been funded by the NIH, NIH INBRE (Idaho Network for Biomedical Research Excellence) Program of the National Center for Research Resources, NSF WeLEAD, and internal grants from ISU. I am currently the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Developmental Psychobiology.

Research Interests

I have broad research interests in metacognition (thinking about one's cognition), including metamemory and metacomprehension, and cognitive aging. I work to identify the cues on which metacognitive judgments are based, evaluate the reliability of these cues, and understand individual differences (including aging) in metacognitive judgment accuracy.

B.A. (1995), Western Michigan University; M.S. (1999), Auburn University, Pre-Doctoral Clinical Resident (2001-2002), University of Mississippi Medical Center; Ph.D. (2002), Auburn University; and Postdoctoral Fellow (2002-2004), National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, Medical University of South Carolina.

Research Interests

Dr. Lawyer's research interests include laboratory models of decision-making, with a particular focus on the delay and probability discounting tasks. Withing this paradigm, Dr. Lawyer studies methodological aspects of delay discounting, such as the impact of domain-specific patterns of impulsive choice, and developing strategies to better model specific patterns of impulsive choice, such as that associated with sexual risk-taking. Although he is primarily focused on decision-making, he remains interested in trauma and anxiety-related phenomena.

Dr. Lawyer's clinical interests include cognitive-behavioral and other empirically-supported approaches to reducing anxiety-related and depressive symptoms, and brief psychotherapy.

Postdoctoral Fellow (1999-2001), Victims of Violence Program, Cambridge Health Alliance/Harvard Medical School.

Research Interests

My research interests focus broadly on experiences of interpersonal violence, and more specifically, on trauma survivors' use of resources to cope with and to recover from traumatic events. Currently, my research team is conducting a series of projects examining incarcerated women's and youths' trauma exposure, mental health, treatment/programming needs, and factors influencing current functioning as well as reintegration into the community post-release from prison. Finally, I am also working with colleagues to examine trauma exposure and mental health as risk factors for incarceration.

My clinical interests are in trauma treatment, families, and general individual and group treatment.

Research Interests

Dr. Rasmussen's research interests are broadly in the area of behavioral economics and behavioral pharmacology. Specifically, she has two laboratories (animal and human) that are dedicated to examining behavioral economic and neural correlates of behaviors and decision-making involved in obesity. Her animal work is centered around how dopaminergic, endocannainoid, and opioid neurotransmitter systems affect the value of food reinforcement in diet-induced and genetic rodent models of obesity. Her human work focuses on behavioral economic factors that influence food-based decision-making related to obesity. She recently was awarded a three-year research grant from the National Institutes of Health to investigate the relations among food insecurity, obesity, and food impulsivity. You can also access some of Dr. Rasmussen's recently published studies.

Broadly speaking, I am interested in psychotherapy process and outcome research. More specifically, I examine the client, therapist, and relationship factors that help individuals with mental and behavioral health problems seek out psychotherapy, stick with it until it is completed, and get better while in treatment.
