Dr. Widiger











Personality & Psychopathology Lab

at the University of Kentucky



Welcome to the web site for the study of personality and psychopathology at the University of Kentucky!! If you would like a copy of the Five-Factor Model Rating Form (FFMRF), click here to open a copy in Microsoft Word.


Our laboratory is concerned with the diagnosis and classification of personality disorders. We are interested in the intersection between general personality functioning and psychopathology, particularly the integration of the dimensional, five-factor model of personality with the American Psychiatric Associationís personality disorder categories. We also conduct research on gender differences and gender bias in the diagnosis and assessment of personality disorders.


We are currently conducting a number of research projects. For more information, you can go to the projects link. Recent publications from this lab are located in the publications link. There are also links for information on the supervising psychologist, Dr. Widiger and the graduate students involved with this lab.
