Olivia Tasheuras is a doctoral student in KU’s Clinical Psychology program and is a member of the BHRG. She is interested in decision-making processes of justice-involved youth. Specifically, she is interested in how delay of gratification and impulsivity characteristics may relate to these processes and risk-taking behaviors. She is also interested in studying how these factors evolve as dynamic factors, how they relate to recidivism, and how they may be used to inform assessment and intervention development, particularly risk assessment.
