New Treatment Promising for Borderline Personality Disorder
Adding individualized therapy to a short version of a good psychiatric management model improves mood, emotional control, and some interpersonal skills in patients with borderline personality disorder (BPD), although it does not appear to further reduce borderline symptoms, a new study shows.
@keya Patients with BPD typically experience interpersonal relationships as challenging and have difficulty with mood regulation and with expressing emotions in effective ways, along with having identity disturbances. They may suffer from angry outbursts, exhibit self-harm behaviors such as cutting, and feel abandoned or rejected by harmless gestures from others. A number will make dangerous suicide attempts. Experts agree that BPD is best treated by structured psychological and psychotherapeutic interventions.
