Are you over the age of 18 years old and have ever been provided with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)?
Do you have a child aged between 4 and 17 years of age?
If you answered ‘yes’ to both of these questions, you are invited to participate in a voluntary and anonymous questionnaire exploring the relationship between symptoms of borderline personality disorder (BPD), parenting behaviours and attitudes. The purpose of this research is to explore whether symptoms of BPD may impact on parenting attitudes and behaviours, and to identify protective factors that determine healthy family functioning in these families. We are inviting participation from both mums and dads who have had a past or present diagnosis of BPD.
If you decide to participate in this research, you will be asked to answer some questions about your mental health, parenting attitudes and behaviours, and to comment on behaviours for each child aged between 4 and 17 years of age. You will not be asked to include any specific identifying information about yourself or your children. The length of the questionnaire may vary depending on the size of your family but we recommend putting at least an hour aside to complete it.
Participation in the research is voluntary. To learn more about this project, please click on the following link:
