NIMH R01 Grant Funding

Dr. Maureen Zalewski recently received funding from the National Institute of Mental Health for a five year clinical trial. With this, she aims to determine if it is possible to restore healthy trajectories of emotion regulation in children by treating mothers with dialectical behavioral therapy, an effective therapy for BPD. This study may identify a modifiable pathway by which maternal BPD places offspring at risk for later mental disorders, and aims quantify how much improvement in children’s ability to regulate their emotions can be achieved by treating mothers alone. Knowledge gained may lead to additional prevention interventions focused on a mother to modify a child’s environment.
