Dr. Farhat Jamil

Beaconhouse National University (BNU) is delighted to announce that Dr. Farhat Jamil, a distinguished Professor at the Institute of Psychology, has co-authored a significant research article titled "A Moderated Mediation Model of Age-Related Decline in Selective Executive Functions and Quality of Life in Men with Substance Use Disorder." The study has been published in an HEC-recognized W category journal, marking a notable achievement in her academic career.

This research delves into the intricate relationship between age, executive function components, and quality of life (QoL) in young men with substance use disorder. Utilizing a sample of 212 inpatient men, the study explores how inhibition, a selective executive function, mediates the negative association of age with various QoL domains—psychological, social, and environmental. Additionally, it examines the moderating role of family history of substance use, revealing stronger negative associations in individuals with a familial history of substance use disorder. The study's findings highlight the critical impact of inhibitory control on the quality of life among substance abusers and underscore the importance of considering family history in therapeutic interventions.
