1. Jackson, Anne Elizabeth. Psychoanalytic conceptualizations of borderline personality disorder: A Rorschach study of borderline adolescents.

Degree: PhD, Psychology, 1990, University of Michigan

This study was designed to test several psychoanalytic hypotheses concerning the intrapsychic features which are thought to distinguish borderlines from other psychopathological conditions. Subjects were inpatient and non-patient female adolescents ranging in age from 13 to 18. Adolescent inpatients were diagnosed on the basis of their scored responses to Gunderson's Diagnostic Interview for Borderlines; forty-five were so classified as borderline, and 30 as non-borderline. These groups were compared with a group of 31 normal adolescents. Several Rorschach measures were used to tap intrapsychic dimensions thought to be particularly relevant to assessing borderline functioning (e.g., the quality of internalized object relations, the quality of ego defensive and ego adaptive functioning, aspects of affect regulation, and the quality of separation-individuation conflict). Borderlines were distinguished from both normals and non-borderline inpatients by virtue of ego disturbances suggestive of considerable thought disorder, perceptual distortions and weakened reality testing. Defensively, borderlines appeared to rely excessively and non-specifically on a number of "primitive" defenses, including splitting, denial, projective identification, idealization and devaluation. There was little support, however, for the idea that borderline adolescents utilize splitting more than other adolescents, or that a specific and discernibly unique constellation of "borderline" or "narcissistic" defenses can be thought to characterize them. Borderline adolescents were significantly more preoccupied with aggressive fantasies than were non-borderlines, and appeared more likely to express their aggressive fantasies in a more blatant, "primitive" form. Most typical of borderline adolescents was an inner object world characterized by primitive narcissistic concerns, symbiotic dependency needs, megalomaniacal, omnipotent trends and intensely conflictual, separation-individuation strivings experienced in regressive, oral terms. Overall, these results appear to provide considerable support for several psychoanalytic hypotheses concerning the intrapsychic features which are thought to distinguish borderlines from other patient groups. Furthermore, they lend support to the idea that borderline personality disorder as a personality disorder diagnosis can be meaningfully applied to adolescents who symptomatically resemble adult borderlines.

2. Kanukollu, Shanta Nishi. Exploring Perceptions of Child Sexual Abuse and Attitudes Towards Help-Seeking among South Asian College Students.

Degree: PhD, Psychology and Women's Studies, 2010, University of Michigan

In this dissertation study, I examined perceptions of child sexual abuse (CSA) and attitudes towards psychological help-seeking held by South Asian college students living in the U.S. I conducted an online community survey (N = 349) among South Asian college-aged students (age18-25) who self-identified as South Asian, South Asian-American or with any subethnic group falling under the South Asian category More specifically, I examined the effects of Asian American Model Minority endorsement, idealized gender ideology, and acculturation on perceptions of CSA and attitudes towards help-seeking in a sample of South Asian college students across the United States. I found that MM Ideology was a significant predictor of certain types of CSA myths. Higher endorsement of MM Ideology predicted less Blame Diffusion, greater belief in Culture as Protective Factor (for CSA), and greater belief in Lay Theories of Coping. Asian Male Ideal (AMI) predicted all factors related to perceptions of CSA except for Restrictive Abuse Stereotypes. That is, AMI predicted greater endorsement of Blame Diffusion, greater Denial of Abusiveness, greater belief in Family and Community Awareness/Response, greater belief in Culture as Protective Factor, and less knowledge of Lay Theories of Coping. AMI predicted less positive Attitudes Towards Help-Seeking, as well. Asian Female Ideal (AFI) predicted greater Denial of Abusiveness, greater Restrictive Abuse Stereotypes, and greater belief in Culture as Protective Factor. AFI also predicted less positive help-seeking attitudes. Lastly, I found that acculturation predicted less Blame Diffusion, less Denial of Abusiveness, and less belief in Culture as Protective Factor. Idealized gender ideology (AMI & AFI) alone was a significant predictor of attitudes towards help-seeking. Thus, a majority of my hypotheses were supported. Overall, the present research findings point towards the importance of cultural context when conceptualizing CSA amongst immigrants in the U.S. The results of this study have important implications for clinicians working with South Asian CSA survivors and their families, community members and organizations addressing issues related to gender violence, colleges interested in developing culturally competent services, and researchers in the areas of clinical and gender psychology.
