Research and Strategies for Treating Adolescents and Families Affected by Borderline Personality Disorder
This one-day conference aims to inform mental health professionals, school personnel, pediatricians, as well as individuals and their families impacted by borderline personality disorder. Experts will discuss the importance of early detection, accurate diagnosis, treatment goals, specific DBT skills to help adolescents and family members, DBT-based parenting interventions and a peer-led program for families. We are honored to have people share their lived experiences and their successful navigation through the obstacles of symptoms and treatment.
The STEADY study is currently enrolling mothers who exhibit moderate to severe symptoms of borderline personality disorder (BPD) and who have a child three years of age (36 to 48 months) and their child for a four-part study that involves interviews, questionnaires, and interactive laboratory tasks. Compensation will be provided for participation in the study.
