Research Focus


My research focuses on psychosocial factors related to the development of borderline personality disorder (BPD), particularly in the areas of family relationships, dysfunctional parenting and different types of childhood maltreatment experienced by these women. I am currently studying mental illnesses, notably BPD, in parents whose children are followed by Youth Protection Services (YPS), looking at prevalence and impact on children. I am also interested in studying and following prospectively an at-risk sample of adolescents followed by YPS because of abuse and/or neglect who have a mother with BPD to understand how borderline pathology develops over time. My clinical research focuses on factors that affect treatment outcomes (retention, compliance, as well as symptomatic and functional status) in short term and long term treatment of patients with borderline personality disorder.
