IDAP research group

Welcome to the IDAP (Individual Differences and Psychopathology) research team’s website, Universitat Jaume I.

The main interest of our group is the study and measurement of personality and individual differences. We investigate how personality, and also other relevant factors, is related to psychopathology and health. We are currently working on internalising and externalising syndromes that include some of the most common, and closely related to personality, psychological disorders. Most of our research efforts have been focused on externalising disorders, especially alcohol and other drugs consumption. Personality is only one of multiple factors that complexly interact in the development of addiction, but also in other psychological disorders and health-related behaviours. Thus, our research takes into account different genetic, psychological, and social variables related to psychopathology and health.
