Welcome! The Personality & Psychopathology Lab at Oklahoma State University conducts research that examines personality disorders using dimensional models of personality traits in a variety of ways.

 

Our studies typically focus on:

 

  • Assessment of personality and personality pathology

  • Utility and applications of personality traits to clinical use and outcomes

  • Extensions of personality models to constructs not described in a diagnostic manual (e.g., successful psychopathy) and maladaptive behavioral patterns (e.g., nonsuicidal self-injury, problematic drinking)
