Dr. Beauchaine earned his undergraduate degree in psychology from Portland State University in 1993. He received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology, with a quantitative minor, from Stony Brook University in 2000, and completed his clinical internship at the University of California at San Diego School of Medicine. He is past recipient of the American Psychological Association Distinguished Scientific Award for Early Career Contributions to Psychology, has served on numerous editorial boards, and as Associate Editor for the journal Psychophysiology. His research addresses the neural underpinnings of and development of both behavioral impulsivity and emotion dysregulation in children, adolescents, and adults.
