  1. This was so interesting to read, the approach you took was so unique and outside the box– great work! Out of curiosity, how did you come up with this topic/ research questions?

  2. This analysis immediately grabbed my attention as its context and direction were quite unique. I found the quantitative analysis results illustrating no significant difference in mental health outcomes for those who received an intervention. I wonder what types of interventions those were? I would also be interested in knowing how long these significant others have been with their partners diagnosed with BPD. It’s easy to place our focus as researchers on the clients themselves, and forget about those who are directly affected. Great choice of research questions and well done!

    1. Hi, I am so happy to hear that you liked my research. To answer your question, the interventions included any therapy significant others of people with BPD had opted for. This included interventions such as individual or group therapy, DBT skills, and even family therapy.
