Treating Borderline Personality Disorder

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is marked by pervasive instability. People with this disorder usually see symptoms by early adulthood. This disorder is rarely diagnosed in childhood. Those with BPD are often very impulsive, and display an extreme sensitivity to feelings of abandonment, separation or rejection. When the individual perceives this to happen, their emotions fluctuate very quickly and vividly, often resulting in impulsive and often self-injurious behaviors.

Symptoms include:

Psychotherapy is necessary for treatment of BPD. David’s treatment for BPD includes Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), a therapy specifically created for Borderline Personality Disorder. DBT can teach an individual to begin to regulate their emotions, understand triggers, and begin to see more of the “grey” in life (as compared to the black and white).
