Research Project – Mindful Parenting and BPD Symptoms

My name is Alana Watson.  I am a 4th year Psychology Honours student at the Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia.

I am currently seeking participants for my research project investigating how reflective function and self-compassion can influence the mindful parenting abilities of mothers with Borderline Personality Disorder Symptoms.

We hope to explore these factors across the full spectrum of experience, so we encourage participation whether or not you have ever experienced Borderline Personality Disorder symptoms.  You must be over 18 years of age and a mother.

If you would like to participate within this study, please click here to access the survey (the survey starts when you click the red arrow)

The survey should take approximately 45 minutes to complete. All responses are completely anonymous and confidential.

I would also greatly appreciate it if you could forward this advert and survey link to your friends, family members, and colleagues, as I am hoping to reach as many people as possible to participate within this study.

Thank you for your assistance and consideration.

If you have any questions regarding the project, please contact me via email at or you may contact the Principal Investigator, Dr. Roslyn Galligan of the Faculty of Health, Arts, and Design at

Yours sincerely,
Alana Watson
