Dr. Wupperman is invested in improving the understanding and – ultimately – treatment of severe emotional and behavioral dysregulation. Her research focuses on 1) evaluation and dissemination of a transdiagnostic psychotherapy (Mindfulness and Modification Therapy) she developed to target behavioral dysregulation; 2) exploration of constructs underlying emotion dysregulation, behavioral dysregulation, and substance-use disorders; and 3) investigation of the effects of mindfulness and emotion-regulation skills on mental health and well being. She is currently conducting her second grant-funded clinical trial of Mindfulness and Modification Therapy customized to target substance abuse and aggression.
