Working group "Systematic reviews on the treatment of personality disorders", Mainz University Medical Center, Clinic for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy.

A special focus of the Clinic for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at the Mainz University Medical Center is the treatment of patients with personality disorders, among other things within the framework of a special ward for patients with borderline personality disorders The focus is on the evidence-based treatment options for personality disorders (http://www.unimedizin-mainz.de/psychiatrie/wissenschaftler/eric/ag-borderline.html).

The working group "Systematic reviews for the treatment of personality disorders" headed by Prof. Dr. med. Klaus Lieb, which emerged from the originally Freiburg working group, focuses on reviews of the psychotherapeutic and pharmacotherapeutic treatment of personality disorders. Experts in clinical research (Prof. Dr. med. K. Lieb, J. Stoffers, Universitätsmedizin Mainz; Prof. Dr. med. B. Völlm, Dr. Mike Ferriter, Dr. Nick Huband, Section of Forensic Mental Health
University of Nottingham, UK) work here with experts in the field of biometrics and statistics (German Cochrane Center, Freiburg; Prof. Dr. M. Schumacher, Dr. G. Rücker). The working group is organizationally linked to the Cochrane Developmental, Psychosocial and Learning Problems Group, Belfast, UK ("CDPLPG", Coordinating Editor: Prof. G. Macdonald), where Prof. Lieb also works as editor. In addition, due to its own research activities, the working group is internationally networked with experts in the field of the treatment of personality disorders and has good insight into relevant current research activities.

As part of two projects funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), reviews are being carried out on the effectiveness of pharmacotherapeutic and psychotherapeutic interventions in the treatment of personality disorders. The working group is cooperating with British reviewers from the Cochrane Developmental, Psychosocial and Learning Problems Group and colleagues at the University of Nottingham.
In addition to the preparation of the reviews on the effectiveness of the treatment methods, recommendations for the planning of further therapy evaluation studies in this area should be formulated on the basis of the comprehensive insight gained in this way into the methodology of the existing RCTs, on the one hand with regard to content-related aspects such as further questions, on the other hand with regard to methodical-qualitative aspects such as the selection of relevant result variables and suitable valid and reliable measurement methods.
