This study examined relationships between BPD symptoms and symptoms of bulimia nervosa (BN) and anorexia nervosa (AN), including whether the nine BPD symptoms differentially relate to BN versus AN.

BN and AN symptoms were greater among individuals who endorsed unstable relationships, affective instability, emptiness, identity disturbance, inappropriate anger, dissociation/paranoia, and suicidal behavior. BN, but not AN symptoms, were higher when impulsivi...

Authors: Ducasse D, Van Gordon W, Brand-Arpon V, Courtet P, Olié E Abstract Bypassing a reductionist view of existing diagnostic categories, ontological addiction theory (OAT) is a new psychological model of human functioning. Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), defined as "a pattern of instability in interpersonal relationships, self-image and affects, and marked impulsivity", is not only common (up to 20% of psychiatric inpatients), but also strongly associated with suicide attempts and death by suicide. Therefore, BPD constitutes a major public health concern. As a consequence of an underlyin...

A discrete, specific diagnosis of suicidal behavior disorder is included inDSM-5 Section III, which contains “conditions for further study.” Such a diagnosis could be enormously clinically useful, helping to identify at-risk patients for treatment and aiding in research on suicide, according to former APA President Maria A.

Neuropsychiatric disorders are broadly defined and categorized according to clusters of behavioural symptoms. However, symptom expression can be heterogeneous within diagnostic categories and homogeneous across diagnostic categories. Accordingly, many recent investigations have focused upon identification and treatment of specific behavioural phenotypes. Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) is a phenotype that is highly prevalent in neuropsychiatric disorders, including Borderline Personality Disorder.
