Borderline Personality Disorder Demystified – symptoms, nature, and treatment are outlined and explored

Some very helpful advice in this next article. These are things that will most definitely help, although they are dependent on a diagnosis having been made. If one isn’t aware that one is facing Borderline then it may be very difficult to know how to deal with the situation. People who suffer from BPD may just seem to be particularly nasty, or may seem to be lying because they are very inconsistent. The sad truth is that they are very…

Borderline personality disorder: The lability of psychiatric diagnosis : Current Psychiatry

Borderline personality disorder: The lability of psychiatric diagnosis : Current Psychiatry

A very interesting article about the ever changing criteria for diagnosis of Borderline Personality disorder. To my mind there is no doubt that a mental disorder exists in those who display the symptoms, but in my experience it has been very difficult to identify BPD as a single identifiable disorder. One persona with whom I have had a lot of interaction displayed clear co-morbidity (Bulimia) and I found myself trying to work out whether one was the cause for the…

Psychotic symptoms in patients with borderline personality d… : Current Opinion in Psychiatry

A fascinating and helpful article, albeit a long and factual one, regarding the occurrence of Psychosis in patients with Borderline Personality Disorder.

As the name of the disorder signifies, it was originally introduced to describe patients who seemed to be on the border between neurosis and psychosis [1]. Although this concept has later been replaced by an operationalized diagnosis [2], psychotic symptoms have always been considered to be…

Borderline Personality Disorder

Another interesting article which may help to better understand both how to recognize and identify the attributes of Borderline personality Disorder, and which may give you some insight into what the other person is actually going through. Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a pervasive pattern of behaving and thinking.

INTERVENTIONS FOR PEOPLE WITH ANTISOCIAL PERSONALITY DISORDER AND ASSOCIATED SYMPTOMS AND BEHAVIOURS – Antisocial Personality Disorder – National Library of Medicine – PubMed Health

An interesting though long article regarding the treatment of ASPD. Both psychological and pharmacological interventions for people with antisocial personality disorder are poorly researched and direct evidence on the treatment of this population is scarce. Three relatively recent reviews failed to identify any high-quality evidence for people receiving treatment for antisocial personality disorder (Salekin, 2002; Warren et al., 2003; Duggan et al., 2007a).

A ted talk, unrelated to Personality disorders, but one which touches on the reasons ordinary people don’t necessarily realize when they are interacting with somebody who as one of the behaviors of BPD and is engaging in the compulsive lying which may be associated with the disorder.

Do You Know Someone Like This: The Borderline Personality Disorder

Do You Know Someone Like This: The Borderline Personality Disorder

A very interesting, albeit long, article by Joel Bruce Douglaswhich clears up some of the more detailed attributes of BPD: t is common to joke that someone has a personality disorder. But personality disorders are no joking matter. Try having a close relationship with someone with a personality disorder—particularly of a narcissistic or borderline variety—and it is likely you will be in for a roller coaster ride…and worse, you will be blamed for it! The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM)…
