Yale Instruction/Investigation/Intervention in Emotional Lability and Dysregulation (YIELD)
Welcome to YIELD, a task force at Yale devoted to the Instruction/Investigation/Intervention in Emotional Lability and Dysregulation! We are a group of educators, scientists, and clinicians dedicated to improving the understanding and treatment of those affected by chronic emotional dysregulation, including Borderline Personality Disorder and other self-destructive coping.
We are particularly committed to approaches that enhance compassion and cooperation among those struggling with these problems, their families, and professionals attempting to help them; to dispelling myths and sources of misunderstanding; and to fighting stigma related to these conditions.
Our activities involve basic research into underlying problems; traits, and correlates; clinical research to improve treatments; and education for family, clinicians, and the next generation of treatment providers.
