Borderline personality disorder and the emotional cascades of the condition will be the focus of the next Brain & Behavior Research Foundation monthly webinar on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 from 2 to 3 p.m. EST. Edward A. Selby, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology, Rutgers University, will discuss his research which specializes in suicidal and self-injurious behavior, personality disorders and eating disorders. A major focus of his research on these disorders involves emotion dysregulation and the use of self-sabotaging behaviors, such as binging and purging, self-injury, alcohol and substance use, fighting or reckless driving, to distract from upsetting emotions.
The free webinar is open to the public, who can register online at bbrfoundation.org/webinars. During the last 15 minutes of the webinar, Dr. Selby will answer questions posed by participants.
This webinar is part of a monthly series in which Jeffrey Borenstein, M.D., President & CEO of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, hosts presentations by leading mental health researchers who discuss and answer questions about the latest in new technologies, early intervention strategies and next-generation therapies for brain and behavior disorders and mental illness. Each webinar is live tweeted with the hashtag #brainchat. After the live event, recordings of the webinars are available on the Foundation’s website at: bbrfoundation.org/webinar.
