Research interests

My main area of research concerns the development of young children in the face of adversity. My ultimate aim is to develop psychological prevention and intervention programmes to enhance children’s early development and support their families.

My work in Southampton is based within the Centre for Innovation in Mental Health (CIMH). I would be pleased to hear from students interested in pursuing research in line with my interests.

Most recently, I have been working on a PhD under the supervision of Profs Cathy Creswell and Lynne Murray at the University of Reading. My work has focused on anxiety disorders in young people, risk factors for developing these and prevention programmes for those at risk of developing anxiety disorders. (See Lawrence, Rooke & Creswell, 2017, Lawrence, Murayama & Creswell, in press, for papers arising from this work.)

Previously, I worked in Oxford with Profs Alan Stein, Lynne Murray and Peter Cooper to examine infants’ development in the context of maternal post-natal depression. (See Stein et al., 2018 and Lawrence, Craske, et al., 2017 for papers arising from this work.)
