Description

This presentation is geared toward individuals interested in psychology, mental health, or in conducting literature research in general. For those interested in psychology, clinical features of borderline personality disorder that may serve as risk predictors of suicidal behavior are assessed. An overview of the disorder includes the symptoms and prevalence. An overview of suicidality, including prevalence and risk factors among general and clinical populations, are provided and may apply to anyone, as mental health is a universal issue. Prevalence of suicidality among the BPD diagnosis is described. Research focuses on impulsivity, non-suicidal self-injury, affective instability and aggression, and comorbidity with substance use disorder, major depressive disorder, and other cluster-B disorders as risk indicators associated with BPD. For those interested in research, I will discuss the literature review process, including planning, challenges I faced, and what I learned from the research experience.
