Social Learning in Borderline Personality Disorder

People with borderline personality disorder can suffer from tumultuous social worlds in which other people seem unreliable or even threatening, and relational ruptures can be difficult to repair. These problems can profoundly impact personal and work settings. In this webinar, I will discuss the details of social learning: What do we expect about new people we meet? How do we respond when they surprise us? How do we respond when they are unreliable? Using new mathematical and neuroimaging methods, I will explore how these social processes may go awry in borderline personality disorder.
