Dr. Iverson is Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine and Clinical Research Psychologist in the Women’s Health Sciences Division of the National Center for PTSD, VA Boston Healthcare System. In addition, she is an investigator at the VA Health Services Research and Development (HSR&D) Center for Healthcare Organization and Implementation Research. Dr. Iverson obtained her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2008, subsequently completing post-doctoral training in clinical psychology at the VA Boston Healthcare System/Boston University School of Medicine.

Dr. Iverson’s program of research aims to identify best practices for the detection, assessment, treatment, and prevention of intimate partner violence (IPV) within VA and other health care settings. Her work evaluates the clinical utility of IPV screening and counseling procedures, with an eye toward reducing risk for future victimization. Dr. Iverson also has interest in improving health care coordination and psychosocial treatment for individuals who have experienced traumatic events such as interpersonal violence and traumatic brain injury. She collaborates with several VA/BU colleagues on studies evaluating the treatment experiences and needs of veterans who have experienced TBI. She also serves as Co-Chair for the Gender and Trauma Special Interest Group of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies as well as the VA HSR&D Women’s Health Research Networks’ Special Interest Group on IPV.

Dr. Iverson is a 2012 recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). Her recent work, currently funded by a VA HSR&D Career Development Award, involves several studies focused on implementation of IPV screening and response practices within VA.
