Hi, the info below came cross our desks. It looks like a really good opportunity to shine the light on issues that caregivers may have.
We are pleased to let you know about an opportunity to participate in an international (online) research study on the experiences (coping, distress and well-being) of family members/caregivers of someone with BPD.
The researchers are associated with University College Cork (Republic of Ireland) and this study has obtained ethical approval from the University College Cork (UCC) Clinical Psychology Research Ethics Committee.
For more information and to participate:
Who should participate?
- Adults (aged 18 years or older) who:
- Are caring for or supporting a relative or significant other (including friend or ex-partner) with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) or Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD).
- Speak English.
What it is:
You are asked to complete a one-time online survey about your experiences as a caregiver. The survey takes about 30-40 minutes to complete.
The survey is anonymous and you may choose not to answer any of the questions.
What is the purpose of the research?
There is little research on BPD compared to other disorders, and there is even less research on the impact on family members and caregivers.
This study will provide insights into the caregiver experience, as well as the impact of family programs and the impact of COVID-19, on caregivers of those with BPD.
