Dr. Weiss’ program of research focuses on the role of emotion dysregulation in psychopathology and related risky, self-destructive, and health-compromising behaviors (e.g., substance use, risky sex, aggression). In particular, her research explores whether maladaptive ways of responding to negative and positive emotions are associated with greater risk for engagement in risky, self-destructive, and health-compromising behaviors among individuals with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Through examination of these processes using novel behavioral and experimental designs, Dr. Weiss hopes to inform the development of treatments aimed at reducing impulsive behaviors among individuals with PTSD.
