An unstable trinucleotide-repeat region on chromosome 13 implicated in spinocerebellar ataxia: a common expansion locus. (1/313)

Larger CAG/CTG trinucleotide-repeat tracts in individuals affected with schizophrenia (SCZ) and bipolar affective disorder (BPAD) in comparison with control individuals have previously been reported, implying a possible etiological role for trinucleotide repeats in these diseases. Two unstable CAG/CTG repeats, SEF2-1B and ERDA1, have recently been cloned, and studies indicate that the majority of individuals with large repeats as detected by repeat-expansion detection (RED) have large repeat alleles at these loci. These repeats do not show association of large alleles with either BPAD or SCZ. Using RED, we have identified a BPAD individual with a very large CAG/CTG repeat that is not due to expansion at SEF2-1B or ERDA1. From this individual's DNA, we have cloned a highly polymorphic trinucleotide repeat consisting of (CTA)n (CTG)n, which is very long ( approximately 1,800 bp) in this patient. The repeat region localizes to chromosome 13q21, within 1.2 cM of fragile site FRA13C. Repeat alleles in our sample were unstable in 13 (5.6%) of 231 meioses. Large alleles (>100 repeats) were observed in 14 (1. 25%) of 1,120 patients with psychosis, borderline personality disorder, or juvenile-onset depression and in 5 (.7%) of 710 healthy controls. Very large alleles were also detected for Centre d'Etude Polymorphisme Humaine (CEPH) reference family 1334. This triplet expansion has recently been reported to be the cause of spinocerebellar ataxia type 8 (SCA8); however, none of our large alleles above the disease threshold occurred in individuals either affected by SCA or with known family history of SCA. The high frequency of large alleles at this locus is inconsistent with the much rarer occurrence of SCA8. Thus, it seems unlikely that expansion alone causes SCA8; other genetic mechanisms may be necessary to explain SCA8 etiology.  (+info)

Attentional mechanisms of borderline personality disorder. (2/313)

We consider whether disruption of a specific neural circuit related to self-regulation is an underlying biological deficit in borderline personality disorder (BPD). Because patients with BPD exhibit a poor ability to regulate negative affect, we hypothesized that brain mechanisms thought to be involved in such self-regulation would function abnormally even in situations that seem remote from the symptoms exhibited by these patients. To test this idea, we compared the efficiency of attentional networks in BPD patients with controls who were matched to the patients in having very low self-reported effortful control and very high negative emotionality and controls who were average in these two temperamental dimensions. We found that the patients exhibited significantly greater difficulty in their ability to resolve conflict among stimulus dimensions in a purely cognitive task than did average controls but displayed no deficit in overall reaction time, errors, or other attentional networks. The temperamentally matched group did not differ significantly from either group. A significant correlation was found between measures of the ability to control conflict in the reaction-time task and self-reported effortful control.  (+info)

Fluvoxamine reduces responsiveness of HPA axis in adult female BPD patients with a history of sustained childhood abuse. (3/313)

The aim of the study is to test whether fluvoxamine affects the function of the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis in female borderline (borderline personality disorder, BPD) patients with and without a history of sustained childhood abuse. Special attention is given to the presence of comorbid major depressive disorder (MDD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The HPA axis of 30 female BPD patients with (n = 17) and without (n = 13) a history of sustained childhood abuse was challenged with a combined dexamethasone and corticotropin releasing hormone test (DEX/CRH test) before and after 6 (n = 14) and 12 (n = 16) weeks of fluvoxamine treatment (150 mg/day). Both 6- and 12-week fluvoxamine treatments were associated with a significant and robust reduction of the adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) and cortisol response to the DEX/CRH test. The magnitude of the reduction was dependent on the presence of sustained childhood abuse, but not on the presence of comorbid MDD or PTSD: patients with a history of sustained childhood abuse showed the strongest reduction in ACTH and cortisol. In conclusion, Fluvoxamine treatment reduces the hyperresponsiveness of the HPA axis in BPD patients with a history of sustained childhood abuse. This effect is likely to be obtained in the first 6 weeks of treatment.  (+info)

Dialectical behaviour therapy for women with borderline personality disorder: 12-month, randomised clinical trial in The Netherlands. (4/313)

BACKGROUND: Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is widely considered to be a promising treatment for borderline personality disorder (BPD). However, the evidence for its efficacy published thus far should be regarded as preliminary. AIMS: To compare the effectiveness of DBT with treatment as usual for patients with BPD and to examine the impact of baseline severity on effectiveness. METHOD: Fifty-eight women with BPD were randomly assigned to either 12 months of DBT or usual treatment in a randomised controlled study. Participants were recruited through clinical referrals from both addiction treatment and psychiatric services. Outcome measures included treatment retention and the course of suicidal, self-mutilating and self-damaging impulsive behaviours. RESULTS: Dialectical behaviour therapy resulted in better retention rates and greater reductions of self-mutilating and self-damaging impulsive behaviours compared with usual treatment, especially among those with a history of frequent self-mutilation. CONCLUSIONS: Dialectical behaviour therapy is superior to usual treatment in reducing high-risk behaviours in patients with BPD.  (+info)

'Still-face' interactions between mothers with borderline personality disorder and their 2-month-old infants. (5/313)

BACKGROUND: There is evidence that psychopathology in mothers may be associated with dysfunctional mother-infant interactions. AIMS: To investigate mother-infant relations when mothers have borderline personality disorder. METHOD: Eight mothers with borderline personality disorder and twelve mothers without psychiatric disorder were videotaped interacting with their 2-month-old infants in three successive phases of interaction: face-to-face play; an episode when the mother adopted a 'still face' and was unreactive; and a period when play interactions were resumed. The videotapes were rated by judges blind to the diagnostic group of the mother. RESULTS: The mothers with borderline personality disorder were more intrusively insensitive towards their infants. During the still-face period, their infants showed increased looking away and dazed looks. Following this, mother-infant interactions were less satisfying and their infants showed dazed looks and lowering of affect. CONCLUSIONS: The diagnosis of borderline personality disorder is associated with a particular pattern of mother-infant interaction. The infants' responses to the still-face challenge might suggest dysfunctional self-regulation, but the developmental significance remains to be assessed.  (+info)

Dopamine dysfunction in borderline personality disorder: a hypothesis. (6/313)

Research on the biological basis of borderline personality disorder (BPD) has focused primarily on the serotonin model of impulsive aggression. However, there is evidence that dopamine (DA) dysfunction may also be associated with BPD. Pertinent research and review articles, identified by Medline searches of relevant topics, books, references from bibliographies, and conference proceedings from 1975 to 2003, were reviewed. Evidence of DA dysfunction in BPD derives from the efficacy of traditional and atypical antipsychotic agents in BPD, and from provocative challenges with amphetamine and methylphenidate of subjects with the disorder. In addition, human and animal studies indicate that DA activity plays an important role in emotion information processing, impulse control, and cognition. The results of this review suggest that DA dysfunction is associated with three dimensions of BPD, that is, emotional dysregulation, impulsivity, and cognitive-perceptual impairment. The main limitation of this hypothesis is that the evidence reviewed is circumstantial. There is no study that directly demonstrates DA dysfunction in BPD. In addition, the therapeutic effects of antipsychotic agents observed in BPD may be mediated by non-DA mechanisms of action. If the stated hypothesis is correct, DA dysfunction in BPD may result from genetic, developmental, or environmental factors directly affecting specific DA pathways. Alternatively, DA dysfunction in BPD may be a compensatory response to alterations in the primary neural systems that control emotion, impulse control, and cognition, and that are mediated by the brain's main neurotransmitters, glutamate, and GABA, or in one or more other neuromodulatory pathways such as serotonin, acetylcholine, and norepinephrine.  (+info)

Attachment studies with borderline patients: a review. (7/313)

Clinical theorists have suggested that disturbed attachments are central to borderline personality disorder (BPD) psychopathology. This article reviews 13 empirical studies that examine the types of attachment found in individuals with this disorder or with dimensional characteristics of BPD. Comparison among the 13 studies is handicapped by the variety of measures and attachment types that these studies have employed. Nevertheless, every study concludes that there is a strong association between BPD and insecure attachment. The types of attachment found to be most characteristic of BPD subjects are unresolved, preoccupied, and fearful. In each of these attachment types, individuals demonstrate a longing for intimacy and--at the same time--concern about dependency and rejection. The high prevalence and severity of insecure attachments found in these adult samples support the central role of disturbed interpersonal relationships in clinical theories of BPD. This review concludes that these types of insecure attachment may represent phenotypic markers of vulnerability to BPD, suggesting several directions for future research.  (+info)

Positron emission tomography of regional brain metabolic responses to a serotonergic challenge in major depressive disorder with and without borderline personality disorder. (8/313)

Previous neuroimaging studies of major depression have not controlled for the presence of personality disorders characterized by impulsive aggressive behavior, such as borderline personality disorder (BPD). Using positron emission tomography (PET), we studied regional glucose uptake in response to fenfluramine (FEN) in depressed subjects with BPD (n=11) and depressed patients without Cluster B Axis II disorders (n=8). Subjects were scanned while medication-free after a single blind placebo administration and after FEN on a second day. Brain responses were measured by PET imaging of [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) and serial prolactin levels. Scans were compared at a voxel level using statistical parametric mapping. Correlations of changes in relative regional cerebral uptake (rCMRglu) with clinical measures were assessed. Depressed borderline patients had greater relative activity in parietotemporal cortical regions (BA 40, BA 22, and BA 42) before and after FEN activation compared to those without BPD. They also had less relative uptake in the anterior cingulate cortex (BA 32) at baseline compared to depressed patients without BPD and FEN abolished this difference. Impulsivity was positively correlated with rCMRglu in superior and middle frontal cortex (BA 6 and 44). Hostility was positively correlated with rCMRglu in temporal cortical regions (BA 21 and 22). In conclusions, borderline pathology in the context of a Major Depressive Disorder is associated with altered activity in parietotemporal and anterior cingulate cortical regions. Controlling for the presence of BPD in future imaging studies of mood disorders may elucidate similarities and differences in regional serotonergic function in these two often comorbid disorders.  (+info)

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a condition characterised by impulsive actions, mood instability, and chaotic relationships.
Affective instability is one of the most prominent symptoms in borderline personality disorder. Currently there are no prospective studies of treatment of this symptom with mood stabilizing medications. This study examines the effectiveness of lamotrigine compared to placebo in reducing emotional instability of several types in borderline patients. The types of emotional instability studied involve anger, anxiety, depression, and elation. Subjects entering this 12 week study will be blind to whether they are receiving active medication or placebo. They will be asked to report levels of instability in their mood on a weekly basis. They will also be asked weekly to rate the intensity of other symptoms of borderline personality disorder symptoms, such as unstable relationships, self-harm, and impulsive behaviors ...

Borderline personality disorder often occurs with other illnesses. This is called co-morbidity or having co-occurring disorders. This can make it hard to diagnose, especially if symptoms of other illnesses overlap with the BPD symptoms.. According to the NIMH-funded National Comorbidity Survey Replication-the largest national study to date of mental disorders in U.S. adults-about 85 percent of people with BPD also suffer from another mental illness.5 Over half the BPD population suffers from Major Depressive Disorder. When depression and BPD co-occur, the depression often does not lift (even with medication), until the borderline personality disorder symptoms improve.. Women with BPD are more likely to have co-occurring disorders such as major depression, anxiety disorders, substance abuse or eating disorders. In men, BPD is more likely to accompany disorders such as substance abuse or antisocial personality disorder.. Most co-morbidities are listed below, followed by the estimated percent of ...
Borderline Personality Disorder is the most difficult to understand and diagnose mental illnesses. As a consequence there is little awareness of its existence in the general public. If there were greater awareness, more resources would be brought to the table to help these people. I believe the biggest problem is its name. Borderline means nothing in helping us understand the condition. I have proposed that we change the name to Faultfinding Personality Disorder based on the most important diagnostic criterion - chronic finding of fault with themselves and others due to their black-and-white thinking which leads to disturbed interpersonal relationships. To back this up I wrote the book Faultfinders: The impact of borderline personality disorder. I explained the condition using examples of numerous famous people to make the symptoms memorable. One of the examples was Brandon Marshall. I would be interested to hear what others think about a possible name change. ...
If you are a family member or friend of someone who is diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, you may or may not have some understanding of what this label means. You also may or may not have overheard or participated in discussion, readings, or media about this very diagnostic label, and possibly gleaned from these discussions or readings an idea that the diagnosis implies that your friend or loved one is somehow burdened with intractable behaviors and symptoms. Typical examples of this might be: "manipulative," "self-harming," "unpredictable," "impulsive," or "childlike." Among mental health labels, the Borderline Personality Disorder label has taken on a highly negative connotation. Understandably, trying to help or live with an individual who may be volatile and possibly suicidal can be frightening or even exhausting. Similarly, if you are in a relationship with an individual with the diagnosis of Borderline PD, you may not understand what drives your loved ones behaviors and may ...

Not many people are familiar with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), but 1% of the population suffers from it. This is another common co-occurring disorder seen paired with addiction to drugs or alcohol. Just like all other dual diagnoses, we cant just treat addiction and abstain from substances. We need to take care of the mental health related component as well. In this case, Borderline Personality Disorder.. Those with BPD live in internal worlds of chaos. They can be like an emotional tornado destroying things in its path, yet they feel bad about it when looking back at their damage. This doesnt help either. They get frustrated with feeling misunderstood, as well as not understanding others. People with BPD can feel drowned in feelings of hopelessness.. All these symptoms are a struggle to live through on a daily basis - for individuals with BPD and their loved ones. These symptoms are only fueled when combined with addiction. Adding drugs and alcohol to the mix when someone is already ...
What is Borderline Personality Disorder? Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a disorder of emotion regulation affecting up to 5% [1] of the population. Up until a few decades ago, those diagnosed with the disorder were thought to be untreatable. Despite this shift, individuals living with BPD continue to face surplus stigma. However, evidence-based treatments, have helped

In this context, the purpose of this study was to compare the occurrence of dissociative and other psychopathological symptoms in these disorders, and to assess the possible influence of antipsychotic medication on the dissociative symptoms. Methods: We assessed 31 patients with schizophrenia and 36 patients with BPD. Dissociative symptoms were measured by the Dissociative
Living with borderline personality disorder, or being in a relationship with someone who has BPD, can be stressful. It can be very difficult to acknowledge and accept the reality of BPD, but treatment may help.. If you are concerned that you, or that someone you care about, may have borderline personality disorder, contact a licensed mental health professional. Many supportive healthcare professionals are available to help you get started on the path to healing. Since BPD can be a complex condition, and treatment usually requires long-term talk therapy, it will be important to find a mental health professional who has expertise in treating this condition.. It is possible to learn how to manage feelings better and find ways to have healthier and more rewarding relationships. With the help of talk therapy, one can learn how to reduce impulsive and self-destructive behaviors and understand more about the condition. With a commitment to long-term treatment, positive and healthy change is within ...
Individuals affected by borderline personality disorder have difficulty regulating their emotions, leading to severe mood swings, instability, impulsivity and poor self-image. People with BPD experience feelings intensely and often find it difficult to stabilize their emotions after intense episodes. A combination of genetics and environmental factors contribute to the development of BPD. More women than men are impacted by borderline personality disorder, with symptoms such as:. ...
Method: Multicentre, double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized trial. Between July 2013 to November 2016, we recruited 276 people aged 18 or over, who met diagnostic criteria for borderline personality disorder. We excluded those with co-existing bipolar affective disorder or psychosis, those already taking a mood stabiliser, and women at risk of pregnancy. We randomly allocated participants on a 1:1 ratio to up to 400mg of lamotrigine per day or an inert placebo using a remote web-based randomization service. The primary outcome was total score on the Zanarini Rating scale for Borderline Personality Disorder (ZAN-BPD) at 52 weeks. Secondary outcomes included depressive symptoms, deliberate self-harm, social functioning, health-related quality of life, resource use and costs, side effects of treatment and adverse events ...
Borderline personality disorder is a mental illness that affects the way to relate to other people and the way you relate to yourself. If youre living with borderline personality disorder, you might feel like theres something fundamentally wrong with who you are-you might feel flawed or worthless, or you might not even have a good sense of who you are as a person. Your moods might be extreme and change all the time, and you might have a hard time controlling impulses or urges. You may have a hard time trusting others and you may be very scared of being abandoned or alone.3. BPD is made up of five groups of symptoms: unstable behaviour, unstable emotions, unstable relationships, unstable sense of identity and awareness problems.4,5. Unstable behaviour means that you often act on impulses or urges, even when they hurt you or other people. Some examples of impulse control problems are:. ...

The bigger cause of Borderline Personality Disorder is living through an extremely traumatic childhood. Sadly, that accounts for about 75% of all cases. When a child is forced to endure so much abuse, their brain does what it can to cope. And since the brain is doing all this coping during the time that its also developing and growing, the pathways end up getting all screwy. And that affects the way we think, feel and react for the rest of our lives ...
What is the difference between Bipolar and Borderline Personality Disorder? Unlike Bipolar, Borderline personality disorder is strongly associated with life
Borderline personality disorder (BPD) and substance use disorders (SUDs) often co-occur, partly because they share risk factors. In this international multicenter study, risk factors for BPD were examined for SUD patients. In total, 1,205 patients were comprehensively examined by standardized interviews and questionnaires on psychiatric diagnosis and risk factors, and it was found that 1,033 (85.7%) had SUDs without BPD (SUD) and 172 (14.3%) had SUD with BPD (SUD + BPD). SUD + BPD patients were significantly younger, more often females and more often diagnosed with comorbid adult attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. SUD + BPD patients did not differ from SUD patients on most risk factors typical for SUD such as maternal use of drugs during pregnancy or parents having any SUD. However, SUD + BPD patients did have a higher risk of having experienced emotional and physical abuse, neglect, or family violence in childhood compared to SUD patients, suggesting that child abuse and family violence ...
Individuals with borderline personality disorder (BPD) are the quintessential multi-problem patients, often presenting to treatment with numerous dysfunctional behaviors and comorbid diagnoses. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a comprehensive, cognitive-behavioral treatment for BPD that has been shown effective in reducing the primary problems it is designed to treat; namely, the frequency and severity of self-injurious and suicidal behavior, maintenance in treatment, and severe problems in living. However, the DBT treatment manual does not currently include a protocol specifying when or how to treat posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a comorbid diagnosis that is prevalent in BPD patients and may maintain or exacerbate BPD criterion behaviors. Similarly, many of the existing treatment outcome studies for PTSD have excluded suicidal, substance abusing, and multiply diagnosed patients, thereby making it difficult to determine the generalizability of these approaches to individuals with ...
Individuals with borderline personality disorder seek psychiatric help and hospitalization at a much higher rate than people with other personality disorders, proba- o bly due to their fear of abandonment and their need to d e seek idealized interpersonal relationships. These patients li represent the highest percentage of diagnosed personali- e ty disorders (up to 60%). e rs. Providing effective therapy for the borderline per- on sonality patient is a necessary, but difficult, challenge. ali The therapist-patient relationship is subject to the same inappropriate and unrealistic demands that borderline is personalities place on all their significant interpersonal rd relationships. They are chronic treatment seekers who r become easily frustrated with their therapist if they feel they are not receiving adequate attention or empathy, and symptomatic anger, impulsivity, and self-destructive behavior can impede the therapist-patient relationship. However, their fear of abandonment, and of ending ...
These are questions I have asked myself a lot over the last few months; about a month ago, I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). I Had been 70% sure I had some form of personality disorder for several months before that, and prior to my knowledge of what a personality disorder was, I had been convinced that there was something wrong with me. Even as a young child I held a firm belief that I was different This belief was probably one of the only things I was ever truly certain of. However, like most people, I was uneducated on mental health and told, even by my parents, that I was simply going through puberty and that my hormones were changing..

There are few publications on personality disorder in adults with intellectual disability (ID), and on borderline personality disorder (BPD) specifically. Publications concerning treatment are sparse, despite the high symptom burden in these patients. This paper aims to discuss these issues.,Six patients with BPD and ID were recruited from the same inpatient unit. Behaviour problems and mental health symptoms were scored on admission and discharge. Information about treatment, length of stay, etc. was taken from case files.,Both mental health symptoms measured by the SCL-90-R, and behaviour problems measured by the Aberrant Behaviour Checklist were significantly reduced on discharge. In the active treatment period, the two main aspects of treatment were validation and practicing new solutions when emotional and behavioural problems occur, i.e. skills training.,The limitations related to this study are that the study is conducted in one milieu only. Another limitation is that the patients were admitted
Background In young adults it can be difficult to differentiate between an early bipolar illness and borderline personality disorder. There are considerable areas of clinical overlap between cyclothymic temperament, bipolar-spectrum disorders and borderline characteristics. The aim of this study was to measure borderline characteristics in young adults during an index depressive episode and to compare three diagnostic groups: DSM-IV bipolar affective disorder (BPAD); bipolar spectrum disorder (BSD); and DSM-IV recurrent major depressive disorder (MDD).. Methods Eighty-seven young adults with a current episode of major depression and at least one previous episode of depression were recruited from consecutive referrals to a psychiatric clinic. Diagnoses were based on the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV (SCID-1) and recently proposed structured diagnostic criteria for BSD [Ghaemi, S.N., Ko, J.Y., Goodwin, F.K., 2002.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a serious mental illness characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and the individuals sense of self-identity. Originally thought to be at the "borderline" of psychosis, people with BPD suffer from a disorder of emotion regulation. While less well known than schizophrenia or bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness), BPD is more common, affecting 2 percent of adults, mostly young women. There is a high rate of self-injury without suicide intent, as well as a significant rate of suicide attempts and completed suicide in severe cases. Patients often need extensive mental health services, and account for 20 percent of psychiatric hospitalizations. Yet, with help, many improve over time and are eventually able to lead productive lives.. ...

Dialectical behavior therapy for adults with BPD and comorbid SUDs was developed, in part, out of recognition that individuals with BPD often have problems with substance abuse, and that up to two-thirds of those diagnosed with SUD also meet diagnostic criteria for BPD (Dulit et al., 1990). In addition, there may be common etiological and maintaining factors across BPD and SUD, such as difficulties with the regulation of emotional experience and expression, as well as impulsivity (Bornovalova et al., 2005; Trull et al., 2001). Clinicians are faced with an enormous challenge when treating individuals with co-occurring BPD and SUD. Compared to those with BPD only, those with BPD and SUDs may show more severe psychopathology, including greater anxiety and suicide attempts (van den Bosch et al., 2001). It is unclear whether standard drug counseling approaches common in the substance abuse treatment community (e.g., 12-step) are efficacious for these difficult-to-treat patients. However, guidelines ...

Background: Interpersonal deficits are a core symptom of borderline personality disorder (BPD), which could be related to increased social threat sensitivity and a tendency to approach rather than avoid interpersonal threats. The neuropeptide oxytocin has been shown to reduce threat sensitivity in patients with BPD and to modify approach-avoidance behavior in healthy volunteers.Methods: In a randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled between-subject design, 53 unmedicated women with BPD and 61 healthy women participated in an approach-avoidance task 75 min after intranasal substance administration (24 IU of oxytocin or placebo). The task assesses automatic approach-avoidance tendencies in reaction to facial expressions of happiness and anger.Results: While healthy participants responded faster to happy than angry faces, the opposite response pattern, that is, faster reactions to angry than happy faces, was found in patients with BPD. In the oxytocin condition, the

The development of a borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a complex phenomenon that is not clearly understood. Although the exact causes of this disorder are still unknown, there is significant effort and research being conducted to identify and understand possible factors that contribute to the development of this condition. As for many other psychological problems, there is a mutual consent among scientist that BPD is caused by a combination of factors (biological/genetic, and environmental/psychological).. Environmental Factors: There is a strong link between the development of BPD and environmentally mediated aversive events such as distressing childhood experiences particularly involving caregivers.(14,16) Some of the distressing experiences that have been associated with BPD include but are not limited to include: physical and sexual abuse, early separation from caregivers, emotional or physical neglect, emotional abuse, and parental insensitivity.

Although the cause of BPD is unknown, both environmental and genetic factors are thought to play a role in predisposing patients to BPD symptoms and traits. Studies show that many, but not all individuals with BPD report a history of abuse, neglect, or separation as young children. Forty to 71 percent of BPD patients report having been sexually abused, usually by a non-caregiver. Researchers believe that BPD results from a combination of individual vulnerability to environmental stress, neglect or abuse as young children, and a series of events that trigger the onset of the disorder as young adults. Adults with BPD are also considerably more likely to be the victim of violence, including rape and other crimes. This may result from both harmful environments as well as impulsivity and poor judgement in choosing partners and lifestyles.. NIMH-funded neuroscience research is revealing brain mechanisms underlying the impulsivity, mood instability, aggression, anger, and negative emotion seen in BPD. ...

The present study sought to investigate the impact of psychotherapy integration, incorporating some cognitive-behavioral (CB) techniques with psychodynamic-interpersonal (PI) techniques, with the moderating impact of borderline personality pathology on short-term psychodynamic psychotherapy treatment outcomes in a sample of 75 outpatients. PI and CB techniques were assessed using independent videotape ratings of therapy sessions and aspects of the alliance were determined using patient-rated scores. Axis II borderline personality pathology was measured using the Borderline Pathology Index (BPI). Treatment outcomes were measured using patients estimates of their broadband functioning (PEI) and change in global symptom index of the brief symptom inventory (BSI-GSI-RCI). Findings of preliminary analyses were nonsignificant; the direct relationship between patient pretreatment borderline pathology with the flexible integration of CB and PI techniques was not significant. In addition, PI and CB ...

Beyond the preceding sampling of patient behaviors that are suggestive of BPD in primary care settings, several syndromes and diagnoses may be suggestive of or associated with BPD, as well. Importantly, not every patient who harbors these types of symptom profiles will have BPD and likewise, not every individual with BPD displays these types of symptom profiles. None-the-less, these diagnostic patterns may be the impetus for reviewing a patients personality functioning in a more formal manner.. Alcohol/substance use disorders. According to the extant literature, there is a frequent linkage between substance use disorders and BPD-not a surprising finding given that self-regulation issues are entailed in both disorders. A review of this literature revealed four studies denoting lifetime prevalence rates for substance misuse in patients with BPD, which averaged 64 percent.[15] In other words, two-thirds of patients with BPD have experienced substantial substance-use problems at some point during ...
Many people with borderline personality disorder also have mood disorders, such as major depressive disorder or a bipolar disorder.[32] Some characteristics of BPD are similar to those of mood disorders, which can complicate the diagnosis.[98][99][100] It is especially common for people to be misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder when they have borderline personality disorder or vice versa.[101] For someone with bipolar disorder, behavior suggestive of BPD might appear while the client is experiencing an episode of major depression or mania, only to disappear once the clients mood has stabilized.[102] For this reason, it is ideal to wait until the clients mood has stabilized before attempting to make a diagnosis.[102]. At face value, the affective lability of BPD and the rapid mood cycling of bipolar disorders can seem very similar.[103] It can be difficult even for experienced clinicians, if they are unfamiliar with BPD, to differentiate between the mood swings of these two conditions.[104] ...
Living with a borderline? Youre not crazy. Borderlines brutalize us to get us to accept their distorted reality, so they can feel safe.
Im impressed with this, to whomever the author is. I have BPD, and it is waning, now that I am inching into my thirties. And I did grow up with a Narc mother - though shes a psychological dream compared to the Narc that is my husbands ex-wife. BPD, if left unrecognized and untreated, can be a nightmare! Its a nightmare for the loved ones of the BPD person, but multiply the size of the nightmare times 10, and its that much for the BPD themselves, usually. I have had to work through DBT by myself, as I have no insurance and very little therapy...the mental health profession is *just now* catching on to just HOW treatable it really is - at least for the BPD who has the heart and the willingness to take responsibility - that is the key. Its the hardest thing Ive ever done. BPD is a heavy filter through which EVERYTHING goes - from tiny things like inconveniences in life to the big things like interpersonal relationships. I have to work almost every moment of every day to keep mental HEALTH on ...
Therapy can be provided one-on-one between the therapist and the patient or in a group setting. Therapist-led group sessions may help teach people with BPD how to interact with others and how to express themselves effectively.. One type of group therapy, Systems Training for Emotional Predictability and Problem Solving (STEPPS), is designed as a relatively brief treatment consisting of 20 two-hour sessions led by an experienced social worker. Scientists funded by NIMH reported that STEPPS, when used with other types of treatment (medications or individual psychotherapy), can help reduce symptoms and problem behaviors of BPD, relieve symptoms of depression, and improve quality of life. The effectiveness of this type of therapy has not been extensively studied.. Families of people with BPD may also benefit from therapy. The challenges of dealing with an ill relative on a daily basis can be very stressful, and family members may unknowingly act in ways that worsen their relatives symptoms.. Some ...
BPD is characterized by volatile moods, self-image, thought processes, and personal relationships. When unable to regulate their emotions, borderlines tend to engage in wild, reckless, and out-of-control behaviors such as dangerous sexual liaisons, drug abuse, gambling, spending sprees, or eating binges.

Our therapists, intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, work with adolescents and adults who have pronounced emotion regulation difficulties.. What is DBT?. DBT is an empirically based, structured therapy that emphasizes both acceptance and change-oriented skills. We help clients move away from polarized thinking in order to accept seemingly opposite truths. This "dialectical" thinking allows them to construct more effective, meaningful lives. Clients learn skills in mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness.. History of DBT at The Wake Kendall Group. Our DBT program is true to the model of a community of therapists treating a community of clients. The Wake Kendall DBT community took root in 2003 when Wake Kendall psychologists first participated in week long intensive training sessions with Dr. Marsha Linehan, the founder of DBT. The Wake Kendall DBT program has grown organically as we have observed clients making effective use of DBT to ...
I dated a borderline for 6 full years. I loved him with all of my heart. So, I must be crazy too. Our relationship was filled with passion, sex, anxiety and tension. He was always in control. He was organized. He was on disability and did not work. If I asked him what he did during the day he got angry. He played video games at 56 years old that were violent. That was his favorite pass time. When he was good he was so very, very good but when he was mean, look out. He took me down. He exhausted me.I had such low self esteem that I did not know I had the ability to LEAVE. I never wanted to leave though. I was hooked. I was addicted. He was totally unlovable looking back. He was attentive then would turn to totally abusive. He would yell at me for putting spaghetti down the disposal. He would critise me, lied to me, etc. I always had to look perfect. He was very visual. He would be happy one moment and then go into a rage. He was in the military for 3 years and had a father that was in for 25 ...
Borderlines strive for love, even if they are being mistreated, they often fall victim in abusive relationships, to avoid abandonment or being alone.
With negative affective interference, increased lethality of suicidal behavior in BPD predicted diminished neural activation in areas critical to executive cognitive function. Therapies diminishing affective interference may reduce risk of suicidal behavior.
Here is a compilation of what families need from clinicians based on hundreds of TARA helpline calls, reports from family skills group participants, and from the work of John Gunderson….. Accurate information. Knowledge of the biological basis of BPD can help families reframe the behavior of their loved one in the light of current science and accept that evidence-based treatment works. Accurate information can dispel the stigma that colors attitudes toward people with BPD.. Understanding that the person with BPD is doing the best he can and does not intend to harm others or himself. Discourage viewing the person with BPD as "manipulative," as the enemy, or as hopeless. Understanding can melt anger and cultivate compassion.. Acceptance that the person with BPD has a disability and has special needs. Help the family accept their loved one as someone with a chronic illness. They may continue to be financially and emotion- ally dependent on the family and be vocationally impaired. BPD is a deficit ...
CNN.com Health Writer/Producer. The manipulations of Anakin Skywalker, also known as Darth Vader in the Star Wars saga, have long been ascribed to the Dark Side of the Force. Now, psychiatrists suggests that the actions of the Jedi Knight could be used in teaching about a real-life mental illness.. A letter to the editor in the journal Psychiatry Research explores just what is wrong with Vader. French researchers posit that Vader exhibits six out of the nine criteria for borderline personality disorder. Unstable moods, interpersonal relationships, and behaviors are all characteristics of this condition, according to the National Institutes of Mental Health. It affects 2 percent of adults, mostly young women.. The young Anakin Skywalker was separated from his mother at an early age, and his father was absent, factors that could have contributed to borderline personality disorder. His infantile illusions of omnipotence and dysfunctional experiences of self and others are also indicative of ...
Finding the right therapist and treatment for the individual with BPD is critical. The best approach is to network and ask for referrals to clinicians where the individual with BPD lives or works.

At the end of Part I of this post of September 12, 2012, I mentioned that doing psychotherapy outcome studies is diabolically difficult, and promised to discuss the reasons why in this post. In fact, because of the literally infinite numbers of uncontrolled variables in studies of human beings both individually and in relationship to other human beings, psychotherapy outcome research can never be the only standard by which the "science" of human behavior-change technology should be measured. In fact, its not even the gold standard. In order to better understand ourselves and what leads us to change our behavior, we must use ALL available sources of information. We have to look at the widespread clinical experience of psychotherapists who use a variety of techniques and theories with a variety of clinical populations. We have to look for potential biases in both clinical studies and within an individual therapists anecdotes and the conclusions that we draw from them. In forming conclusions ...
People with BPD can be very sensitive to the way others treat them. They can feel very happy and grateful when they feel someone has been nice to them, and very sad or angry when they feel someone has been hurtful to them.[9] Their feelings about others often switch from positive to negative if they feel like they might lose someone, if they think someone important to them does not care about them, or if something is not as good as they expected. They think in extremes, seeing things or people as "all good" or "all bad". This is sometimes called black-and-white thinking. It includes a change from admiring someone to devaluing them, often feeling pure anger or dislike.[28] The way they see themselves can also change quickly from positive to negative. While strongly wanting to feel closeness, people with BPD tend to be anxious, have mixed feelings, or be paranoid when it comes to their relationships.[10] They often view the world as dangerous and bad.[9] BPD is linked to high levels of stress and ...
I am the same as you, I usually self harm when I feel angry and I dont feel the pain. I do however, occasionally, self harm when Im really depressed and I dont know what else to do. I do get triggered though sometimes. Its hard to explain but it only happens when I am not well and I am trying to not self harm. I get very clear images in my head and it makes me want to do it. I find when I feel like that and I either see in the preview of a post that it about self harm or if I start to read a post and I find out then that its about self harm, I just dont read on. I think that the person that owns a blog can say whatever they want, we dont have to read it, that is up to us.

By the time people reach their 20s and 30s their self-image is usually fairly consistent - our likes, our dislikes, our religious beliefs, our position on important issues, and our career preferences. But the person with BPD has no sense of self, just like they lack a consistent sense of others. They feel empty and chaotic inside and are dependent on others for cues about how to behave, what to think, and how to be. Being alone leaves them without a sense of who they are, maybe that they dont exist (which is one reason they desperately avoid being alone). The one consistent thing? They know theyre not enough. They judge themselves as harshly as they judge others. They are actors, chameleons, victims of others (even when their own behavior affected the outcome of a particular situation). Some people with BPD may play the role of victim because it draws sympathetic attention, supplies an identity, and gives them the illusion that they are not responsible for their own actions. Its important to ...

8. Either underexpressed or overexpressed feelings of anger, seen in frequent displays of temper, rage, recurrent physical fights, or extreme sarcasm or withdrawl. Rages. Many adult children know them all too well, whether the trigger is a coat hung askew in the closet, a spilled drink, a loud TV, sickness, the suggestion that the person with BPD doesnt remember something the way others do, or a request for divorce. Whether precipitated by something seemingly trivial or serious, the storm-not uncommonly comprised of verbal assaults or physical abuse-can subside just as quickly as it rolled in. Hmmm…which one of these describe my mother…ALL of them overexpressed. (Now, was I a bit sarcastic…naw!!) Mine all underexpressed.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is considered to be one of the most clinically proven methods of therapy, as it is backed by a great deal of evidence-based research.
September 3, 2009 /Press Release/ -- Mount Sinai researchers have found that real-time brain imaging suggests that patients with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) are physically unable to activate neurological networks that can help regulate emotion. The findings, by Harold W. Koenigsberg, MD, Professor of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, were presented at the 11th International Congress of the International Society for the Study of Personality Disorders (ISSPD), held August 21 - 23 at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. The research will also be published in the journal Biological Psychiatry.. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Dr. Koenigsberg observed how the brains of people with BPD reacted to social and emotional stimuli. He found that when people with BPD attempted to control and reduce their reactions to disturbing emotional scenes, the anterior cingulated cortex and intraparetical sulci areas of the brain that are active in healthy people under ...
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) has been proposed as a useful treatment for a wide range of clients with symptoms functionally similar to those of borderline personality disorder (BPD), having in common pervasive emotion dysregulation. There is a set of personality disorders belonging to cluster C (DSM-IV-TR, APA, 2000) that represent the dialectical opposite of BPD and related disorders. These disorders are characterized also by difficulties in emotion regulation: being emotionally constricted, overcontrolled, cognitively rigid, and behaviorally avoidant; and include obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD) and avoidant personality disorder (APD). These features are opposite to the features of BPD (i.e., emotional constriction vs emotional dysregulation, overcontrolled behavior vs impulsive behavior, etc.). DBT could be a useful approach for the treatment of these disorders, given that its main targets are emotion regulation difficulties. In this work we present preliminary findings ...

The term Antisocial Personality Disorder or ASPD for short, refers to a chronic mental condition involving a pattern of disregard for the rights of others including the violation of others rights. Deceit and manipulation are common features of this personality disorder.. Personality disorders refer to mental health conditions related to the way a person feels, thinks, perceives or relates to others. Antisocial personality disorder is a pretty difficult personality disorder as the behavior of people with this disorder might be irresponsible, manipulative, impulsive, reckless, and indifferent to others feelings. Most often this personality disorder will lead to criminal behavior.. In DSM 5 it is included in cluster B, called emotional, dramatic and erratic cluster. The disorders in cluster B are characterized by problems with emotional regulation and impulse control.. This cluster also includes disorders such as Histrionic Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Borderline ...

This meta-analysis used 9 literature search strategies to examine 137 distinct personality constructs as correlates of subjective well-being (SWB). Personality was found to be equally predictive of life satisfaction, happiness, and positive affect, but significantly less predictive of negative affect. The traits most closely associated with SWB were repressive-defensiveness, trust, emotional stability, locus of control-chance, desire for control, hardiness, positive affectivity, private collective self-esteem, and tension. When personality traits were grouped according to the Big Five factors, Neuroticism was the strongest predictor of life satisfaction, happiness, and negative affect. Positive affect was predicted equally well by Extraversion and Agreeableness. The relative importance of personality for predicting SWB, how personality might influence SWB, and limitations of the present review are discussed.
