Doing Bad to Feel Good: Dispositional Links Between Impulsive Behavior and Negative Emotions
Impulsive responding to negative emotions is a critical personality correlate of psychological disorders such as borderline personality disorder, substance use disorders, eating disorders, and internalizing disorders like anxiety and depression. In this talk, Dr. King will describe his lab’s research, which seeks to understand the links between negative emotions and impulsive behavior, and the mechanisms by which this connection raises risk for psychopathology across multiple operationalizations and timescales. This research provides important insights into for whom, when, and why negative urgency raises risk for psychopathology.

This free lecture is part of the promotion review for Dr. King in the Department of Psychology.
