Loved Ones Study
Understanding the experiences of loved ones with borderline personality disorder: an ecological momentary assessment study
We are no longer recruiting new participants for this study.
This research study aims to understand the experiences of individuals who are close to someone who might have Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) or BPD symptoms. BPD is a serious mental health disorder which is characterized by emotion dysregulation, interpersonal problems, impulsivity, and life-threatening behaviour (APA, 2013). Existing research examines the experiences of those with BPD but lacks attention regarding the experiences of those who are close to them. This study aims to address this gap by investigating how individuals close to someone with BPD are affected by BPD symptoms and how individuals with BPD are affected by those who are close to them.
