Dr. Matthew Tull is a clinical psychologist working with the Department of Psychology at the University of Toledo. His research examines the role of emotion regulation difficulties in the development and maintenance of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and common behaviors shared by those with PTSD. These primarily involve health hazards and self-destructive behaviors, such as substance abuse, risk-taking, and non-suicidal and suicidal self-injury.
Dr. Tull aligns with behaviorist principles, frequently integrating acceptance-based behavioral approaches into traditional behavioral interventions. These derive from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness-based interventions, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
