Emotionally invalidating environments

Furthermore, research is providing evidence for the contributions of adolescent BPD symptoms to impaired functioning in adulthood, as evidenced by lower life satisfaction, social support and relationship quality, and more chronic stress [12].As such, examination of BPD symptom development in an adolescent sample can be a reliable opportunity for examining the effects of parental invalidation as it occurs.Therefore, the emotional dysregulation of individuals with BPD is thought to be sustained within the context of an invalidating childhood environment.

Research has provided evidence for the role of invalidating childhood environments in the development and maintenance of emotion dysregulation and BPD symptomology.Certain family functioning environments may foster more invalidation than others.The current study serves to examine how dysfunctional family functioning may allow for BPD symptoms development through the fostering of invalidating environments.Therefore, research looking to identify types of dysfunctional environments which may affect the development of BPD is necessary in order to better provide treatments targeted towards these problematic environmental circumstances.The current study serves to examine how dysfunctional family systems may allow for BPD symptoms development through the fostering of invalidating environments. [2] biosocial model maintains that emotional dysregulation vulnerabilities interact with invalidating childhood environments to contribute to the further development and maintenance of emotional dysregulation, which is at the core of BPD symptoms.
