Research Description

My research is interested in answering the question why people engage in behaviors that may have short-term benefits (e.g. temporary relief from painful emotions) but have long-term negative consequences (e.g., problems in interpersonal relationships, physical health problems).  I am particularly interested in the role that emotions play in the onset and continuance of these behaviors. To date, my  research has focused on the behaviors of nonsuicidal self-injury, aggression, and substance use.
