Personality and Behavior Studies Lab
The Personality and Behavior Studies Lab is under the direction of Dr. Brad Green.
My areas of research focus include: assessment development and validation, addiction, the relationship between personality characteristics and psychopathology, and multivariate statistical analysis (especially taxometrics). I have also consulted for the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP), Recovery Zone, and American Foundation for Addiction research as an expert in assessment development and validation from January of 2006 to the present. My work for IITAP and Recovery Zone includes revision of the Sexual Addiction Screening Test (SAST), updating and reconstructing the scales of the Sexual Dependency Inventory (SDI), updating and reconstructing the scales of the Posttraumatic Stress Index (PTSI), development of a very short screener for sex addiction (PATHOS), and investigation of MMPI-2 and MMPI-2-RF correlates of problematic sexual behavior patterns.
