Friday, Fabruary 24th 1:30 in East Hall 104.

Psychology Meet, Mingle, and Learn with guest speaker Arielle R. Baskin-Sommers, Ph.D. from Yale University

Disinhibitory psychopathology encompasses a broad range of traits and behaviors, which are epitomized by psychopathy, externalizing, and substance abuse. In this talk, I will focus on recent research specifying the cognitive affective mechanisms responsible for the disinhibited behavior of psychopathic individuals. Such findings presage a new era of translating cognitive affective science into increasingly specific and effective interventions for disinhibited individuals.
