How mothers with borderline personality disorder relate to their 12-18 month-old infantsHow mothers with borderline personality disorder relate to their 12-18 month-old infants
The condition of borderline personality disorder (BPD) is one of the most distinctive psychiatric syndromes of adulthood. Environmental factors such as child sexual abuse, and other family influences such as maternal over involvement and inconsistency may have a role in its pathogenesis. Indeed, various forms of maternal psychopathology may be associated with patterns of mother–infant interaction that have an impact on infant development. In this podcast, Dr Margaret Murphy speaks with Professor Peter Hobson about his study which aimed to assess how women with BPD engage with their 12-18 month-old infants in separation-reunion episodes.

ConclusionIn conclusion, our findings should encourage clinical practitioners to address trust deficits towards close others, as well as omniscient negative memory retrieval and interpretation biases which might influence current trust behavior.
Purpose of review Borderline personality disorder (BPD) attracts significant attention from clinicians and researchers alike. Despite increased recognition and willingness to diagnose BPD, most effective treatment approaches remain inaccessible to most. We consider recent developments in the diagnosis and treatment of BPD. Recent findings A literature search of EMBASE and PsychINFO, using the search terms ‘borderline personality disorder,’ ‘diagnosis’ and ‘treatment’ for publications since October 2018, yielded over 300 articles and reviews. The literature highlights the increasing ...
CONCLUSIONS: The findings suggest that the measurement of inter-trial variability in brain activity may be more valuable than the average level for revealing neurophysiological differences associated with impulsivity and personality risk factors for dependence. EEG measures may be particularly valuable in this context because they offer superior temporal resolution and signal-to-noise characteristics. PMID: 32735715 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Lorettu L, Pes GM, Dore MP, Milia P, Nivoli A Abstract The relationship between eating disorders and diabetes is complex in terms of both reciprocity and comorbidity. In some cases, patients with eating disorders and diabetes develop 'purging' behaviours through the use of insulin as a bodyweight control tool, with serious physical complications that can compared to those of untreated diabetes (diabulimia). The clinical cases presented have in common the distorted use of insulin: one patient failed to take the required amounts of insulin, incurring hyperglycaemia, while the other overused it, incurring hyp...

ConclusionsIn light of our findings, we believe that the current legislation and practice of EAS for people with personality disorders is based on an inadequate understanding of underlying psychopathology and a lack of awareness about the contemporary treatment literature. Moreover, we assert that this practice neglects the individual ’s potential for having a life worth living.
CONCLUSIONS: Our longitudinal study of a well-characterized clinical sample found more evidence for stress generation than for stress-induced decompensation in BPD. Stress generation in BPD is driven by externalizing dimensions: antagonism and disinhibition. These results highlight the utility of empirically derived dimensions for parsing heterogeneity present in BPD, leading to improvements in diagnostic evaluation, clinical prediction, and individualized approaches to treatment planning.
