Welcome to the STEPP Lab! Here you’ll find us engaged in research focused primary on the study of borderline personality disorder, emotion dysregulation, and associated traits, behaviors, and environmental factors. Not only are we taking a closer look at the structure of personality and psychopathology, but we are also studying clinical interventions with an emphasis on dialectical behavior therapy. Current research broadly prioritizes psychotherapy mechanisms, outcomes, program improvement and evaluation, as well as barriers to treatment implementation, in a variety of hospital, community, and residential treatment settings.
