Borderline Personality Disorder

A fourth focus of the lab is Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) (e.g., Klonsky, 2008, Journal of Personality Disorders; and Glenn & Klonsky, 2009, Journal of Personality Disorders), including relationships among key aspects of BPD such as emotional instability, impulsivity, and suicide/self-harm. We view emotional instability as the central feature of BPD that leads to the other BPD symptoms such as impulsive behaviours, suicidality, and relationship problems.
