The mission of SAIL (Social Addictions Impulse Lab) is to understand the etiology (root causes) of alcohol use disorders in emerging adulthood.  We have three basic themes to our research.  The first is understanding the indirect influences of parenting on alcohol related outcomes through both internalizing (anxiety, stress, neuroticism, depression, self-concealment) and externalizing disorders (impulsivity, sensation seeking, antisocial personality disorder).  We are also interested in self-regulation specific to the drinking context or impaired control over drinking.  We are interested in both trait and state constructs of self-control.  Lastly, we are interested in developing new measures of resiliency to life stressors in order to better understand the use of alcohol to cope with unpleasant affect.
