Biography

Dr Boylan is a clinician researcher whose aim is to identify developmental and clinical processes which contribute to persistent depression in adolescents. She is keenly concerned about the validity of the diagnosis of borderline personality disorder in youth, identifying its childhood predictors and how to improve the way clinicians provide care to teens who are experiencing a psychiatric crisis. She also studies the epidemiology of oppositional behaviour and irritability in children and adolescents. She leads or participates in several studies with clinical and community participants. These studies are aiming to predict which adolescents may respond best to antidepressant medications, as well as benefit from evidence based psychotherapies, specifically dialectical behaviour therapy.
