  • Borderline Personality Disorder

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is one of ten personality disorders; part of what is referred to as a Cluster A Personality Disorder.

A Personality Disorder is not the same as normal personality theory in that with a disorder it is assumed that the person's life is negatively affected.

The development of BPD is caused by: 1) Intrusive Experiences (recurrent, active injury like being beat up or sexually molested) and 2) Traumatic Neglect (the absence of holding, loving, and touching as a child).

There are several subtypes of Borderline Personality Disorder found in people who have BPD. They are identified as Schizotypal; Affective Instability; Rejection Sensitivity; and Angry/Impulsive.

While some symptoms may be shared with other disorders, it is imperative that a diagnosis is made by an experienced and licensed professional, since the wrong treatment can be harmful.
