Welcome to the Clinical Laboratory for Personality, Psychopathology, and Psychodiagnostics (CPPP)
The CPPP is a clinically-oriented research facility. Research at the CPPP is broadly focused on understanding the role of personality traits in the development, maintenance, and treatment of psychopathology. We address issues related to the measurement and modeling of the phenotypic structure of psychopathology in psychiatric patient and normative samples.
Our goal is to advance strategies for the optimal measurement, classification and assessment of various psychiatric disorders and personality pathology constructs. Research at the CPPP offers training opportunities in implementing and evaluating psychological testing instruments, such as the NEO PI-R, NEO PI-III, MMPI-2, MMPI-2-RF, PAI, and the PID-5, primarily in clinical settings. Students at the CPPP gain exposure to advanced analytic techniques and innovative assessment instruments via research on structural models and DSM-5 personality pathology (Sections II and III).
Our research also examines the direct and indirect effects of personality traits on treatment outcomes, providing students with exposure to personality and its interface with evidence-based treatments for anxiety, depression and personality pathology. Additional and related clinical and research foci include the detection of malingering and the assessment and evaluation of the alexithymia construct.
Dr. Bagby’s research is supported by grants from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the University of Minnesota Press and the National Institute of Mental Health.
