To further our research aims we are currently conducting these studies. 

A Randomized Trial of Motivational Strategies on Emotion Awareness
The purpose of this study is to determine how brief (one-session) discussion of motivational strategies can affect the way people think about their emotions and actions. Specifically, we are interested in investigating how these short interventions may affect an individual’s willingness and motivation to change their behaviors.

Assessing the Effects of Personality and Mood on Computer Measures of Psychomotor Speed
The purpose of the study is to see how psychomotor speed is associated with various psychological and physiological measures. Before the task, all participants complete a clinical interview and fill out questionnaires. During the task participants are attached to physiology equipment that assesses heart rate, respiration, and skin conductance while they compete against an opponent during a psychomotor speed task.

Correlates of Emotion Regulation in an Undergraduate Sample
The purpose of the study is to better understand how personality and mood influence thoughts and behaviors. The study consists on completing a variety of questionnaires aimed at aspects of personality, mood, cognitions, and behaviors. This study is completed through SONA systems.

Correlates of Emotion Regulation in an Undergraduate Sample – Phase 4
The purpose of the study is to better understand how personality and mood influence risk behaviors. Specifically, we are interested in how these things interact in everyday life as measured through ecological momentary assessment (e.g. daily surveys).

An Assessment of Harm and Social Relationships
The purpose of the study is to examine how different thoughts and behaviors influence social relationships. This study consists of completing questionnaires aimed at better understanding how one’s thoughts and attitudes about their own behaviors and how they perceive other’s attitudes about their behaviors are associated with their social relationships. This study is completed through SONA systems.
