Abstract

By analyzing repeated measures data through advanced statistical methods, this study investigates the critical roles of trauma, emotion dysregulation and negative affect (NA) in terms of influencing borderline personality disorder (BPD) features among a group of urban city young women. Our results evidence significant connections between distinct trauma types and NA aspects, as well as a decline of NA and BPD features during emerging adulthood. Implications from our findings extended prior explorations by showing that several distinct NA-related forms of ED, such as proneness to anger expression, shame, and guilt, may serve as critical channels driving the significant link between emotional abuse and BPD symptoms. More importantly, our findings would potentially lead to novel trauma-informed treatments effectively targeting multiple ED forms among people with BPD. Finally, we contribute critical new information to the nascent topic area on emerging adulthood.
