Research/Clinical Interests:

Ben is fascinated by the complexity and difficulty of working with borderline personality pathology. He is interested in translational research on BPD, specifically in understanding the developmental trajectory of this disorder in order to design and implement effective early interventions. Ben is currently utilizing both an attachment theoretical framework and ecological momentary assessment to better understand BPD and its correlates.
