  • Impulsivity


The goal of this program is to test a brief, online, cognitive behavioral intervention for people who struggle with self-harm or suicidal urges or behavior in the context of emotion-related impulsivity.

Study summary:

Participants will be asked to complete 7 brief online modules to cover how to understand emotion-triggered impulsivity, to better detect states of high emotion and arousal, to learn new strategies for self-calming high arousal, and to pre-plan how to cope with high arousal states. As part of the program, participants receive daily texts and prompts to remind them of the intervention content and skills. At baseline and follow-up, participants will complete measures of emotion-related impulsivity, self-harm, and suicidality.


Inclusion Criteria: - at least 13 years of age - engaged in mental health care - evidence of either self-harm or suicidal urges or behavior in the past 3 months - high levels of emotion-related impulsivity. Exclusion Criteria: - inability to adequately take part in the online measures due to problems with intellectual function, language, or other conditions, - psychosis, - not currently living in California, - lack of access to a device to privately complete online modules.
