Dr. Choi-Kain notes various problems in connecting individuals with borderline personality disorder (BPD) with treatments that can help them. She suggests that a vast majority of individuals can access existing psychoeducational videos about BPD and self-assessments online. The effects of using these free publicly available resources have never been studied. Her project aims to design a suite of online videos for psychoeducation in addition to a reliable protocol for digital phenotyping of self-reported symptoms, neuropsychological performance, and vocal variation; and to test the effects of these online resources as a potential clinical prescription that requires low-effort and little additional training for treating clinicians for wider dissemination.
