Consistency and coherence in treatment outcome measures for borderline personality disorder

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review

4 Scopus citations


There is little consensus regarding outcomes assessment in borderline personality disorder treatment trials, making comparisons of results and meta-analytic studies difficult and far less generalizable. The current article highlights a range of measures frequently employed and puts forth a set of recommendations for a core battery of outcome measures in BPD treatment efforts. The proposed core battery aims to be comprehensive while minimizing patient burden, clinician time and costs. The relative brevity of the proposed core battery would engender flexibility for adding specific processes and outcome measures unique to targeted interventions and treatment models.
