Welcome to BADCO!

The Behavioral and Affective Dysregulation Course and Outcomes (BADCO) lab focuses on describing the etiology, development, outcomes and treatment efforts related to behavioral disorders and irritability.

Work by faculty and graduate student researchers in the lab includes efforts to distinguish irritable and behavioral dimensions of oppositional defiant disorder from childhood through early adulthood, to test emotion regulation skills as both an etiological factor and a target for intervention, to identify factors related to service use and to barriers to service engagement, and to describe the effects of behavioral disorders in different contexts and across a variety of possible outcomes.
