Sanislow, Marcus ’13, Reagan ’13 Publish Paper on Borderline Psychopathology

Charles Sanislow, assistant professor of psychology, and two members of his lab, Katie Marcus ’13 and Liz Reagan ’13 published an article on challenging old assumptions about about the outcome of borderline psychopathology in the February 2012 issue of Current Psychiatry Reports. The paper details current findings from major longitudinal psychiatry studies including the Collaborative Longitudinal Personality Study, which Sanislow has been as an investigator on for the past 16 years, and suggests new directions for clinical research. The article is online here.

Also published in February is a work that Sanislow co-authored from the Collaborative Personality Study in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology. The study results identified interpersonal styles that place people at risk for depression and chronic functional impairments. Findings have implications for psychotherapy treatments for chronic depression. The article, titled “Interpersonal Pathoplasticity in the Course of Major Depression,” appears in issue 80, pages 78-86. The study is online here.
