Sample 1 included 754 undergraduates (Mage = 21, 79% female) who completed a battery of self-report measures. Sample 2 included 247 undergraduates (Mage = 19, 74% female) who completed a self-report measure of dissociation, a clinical interview regarding suicide history, and four counterbalanced behavioral pain tolerance tasks.

AbstractDissociative symptoms and suicidality are transdiagnostic features of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and borderline personality disorder (BPD). The primary objective of this study was to examine associations between dissociation (i.e., depersonalization and derealization) and suicidality (i.e., self-harm and suicide attempts) among individuals with PTSD and BPD. We analyzed data from the 2012 –2013 National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC-III;N = 36,309). The Alcohol Use Disorder and Associated Disabilities Interview Schedule forDSM-5 was used to assess lifetime PTSD and B...

Women Health. 2021 Aug 17:1-8. doi: 10.1080/03630242.2021.1968097. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAlthough childhood maltreatment is known to elevate women's risk for suicidal ideation and behavior, research concerning the mechanisms involved remains limited.

The present study examined borderline personality features as a dispositional mediator of the relationship between childhood maltreatment and suicidality, with the moderating effect of age, among help-seeking women. A sample o...
