Course Description

CE Course Description

Although child maltreatment has been established as a risk factor for borderline personality disorder (BPD), little research has addressed how maltreatment influences the development of BPD throughout childhood and adolescence.  The purpose of this intermediate level continuing education course, developed using information from the Development and Psychopathology Journal, is to examine study findings that explore how the timing, chronicity, and subtypes of child maltreatment impact the development of borderline features across four major categories.  Study methods and results are presented as well as a discussion of pertinent findings.

CE Course Objectives

1. Identify research findings pertaining to Borderline Personality Disorder and how its development may be impacted by adverse childhood experiences.

4. Discuss gender differences with BPD, as well as BPD prevalence, symptoms, and outcomes in children and adults.

5. Evaluate study limitations and areas where further research is needed.
