Going Mental: Borderline Personality Disorder Enablers and Apologists – YouTube

Going Mental: Borderline Personality Disorder Enablers and Apologists – YouTube

A frank and open talk about Borderline personality Disorder and the current treatment climate. The industry appears to have some inclination to enable people who suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder to their cost, conceivably in order not to “Kill the goose that lays the golden eggs”. On a more personal level I have seen a family enable the person who suffers from BPD for various reasons, some of which were their own Narcissistic supply or to trade in justification of…

What Are the Root Causes of Borderline Personality Disorder? – OPI Living

Although to me it seems that the research on the causes of BPD and various other Personality disorders is still not completely conclusive, here is some information on the current research on the causes of BPD. Borderline personality disorder, or BPD, is a mental disorder classified by unstable moods, difficulties with interpersonal relationships, and volatile and impulsive behavior, and it is typically diagnosed in early adulthood.

Inside Cornell: Analyzing the words of psychopaths – YouTube

A very interesting talk on the results of analysis of the differences in the language used by Psychopaths and non Psychopaths who had committed murder (and have been incarcerated). Very interestingly it seems that when asked to talk about the murder event the psychopathic subjects were more concerned with what they ate or drank on the day of the event than those who did not meet the criteria. Most saliently we use language in an interesting way, some of the…

BPD In Adolescence: Early Detection and Intervention – Blaise Aguirre, MD – YouTube

Another eye opening and fascinating talk. I really enjoy the way this man speaks, it’s considered and considerate, and lends credence to the point he makes near the end of the talk, which is that the expression of emotion, compassion and consideration inherent in the way we speak are all skills, as with any skill, greater development of the skill holds benefits. I particularly like the phrase “Take a second and be curious about the person’s intention”.

Stop Walking on Eggshells: Secrets of Limit Setting – Randi Kreger – YouTube

An interesting talk on setting boundaries (Phrased in the talk as limits). The talk is sound advice for anyone, even outside of the context of Personality disorders. The same advice can be applied in the work context, although slightly differently. Take away points from this are the five C’s she mentions, but also that one would benefit from giving consideration to what one’s own personal boundaries are pro-actively. Also something which is fundamental is that one needs to take responsibility…
