Many factors, including childhood abuse and trauma, have been implicated in the development of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) [1, 2]. The present study used the Early Trauma Inventory Self-Report Short Form (ETI-SR-SF) and The Borderline Personality Questionnaire (BPQ) to examine the prevalence of early trauma and BPD, respectively, as well as their potential relationship in patients with Bipolar Disorder.

Impulsivity represents one of the pivotal characteristics of bipolar disorder (BD). Structural magnetic resonance imaging techniques have already demonstrated a relationship between high levels of impulsivity and reduced subcortical and limbic structure volumes in subjects with cocaine abuse, depression, and borderline personality disorder. However, such relationship has not established yet in BP. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between impulsivity and limbic and subcortical volumes in patients with BD.

In this study, using multiple linear regression analysis, we found that decreased emotion coping appraisal of resilience in young adults was explained by an increased tendency to update beliefs about cue–outcome associative probability in a volatile environment and the increase in the parental verbal abuse experienced in early childhood. The total scores of resilience appraisals were also explained in the same manner (see Supplementary Tables 4 and 7). In addition, we did not find any effect of gender on the results both with whole subject (Figure 4) and in the gender-matched subgroup (see Supplementary Figure 3).Not...

ak H Abstract Psychiatric disorders and psychological problems are common in patients with diabetes mellitus. There is a twofold increase in depression which is associated with suboptimal glycemic control and increased morbidity and mortality. Other psychiatric disorders with a higher incidence of diabetes mellitus are cognitive impairment, dementia, disturbed eating behavior, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders and borderline personality disorder. The coincidence of mental disorders and diabetes mellitus has unfavorable influences on metabolic control and micro- and macroangiopathic comp...

This study provides support for the notion that non-judgmental attention to the present moment facilitates the integration of regions in neural networks that are related to cognition, attention, and sensation. Introduction Originating in Buddhist traditions, mindfulness training has made its way into Western culture as a method to reduce stress, enhance emotional regulation, and reduce symptoms in a variety of mental health disorders (Teasdale et al., 1995; Farb et al., 2012; Cavanagh et al., 2013; Tabak et al., 2015). Indeed, mindfulness has been shown to reduce symptoms of depression (Chiesa et al., 2015), bipol...

Conclusion It is clear that clinically, there is still much to be learnt about alexithymia and its relationship with a range of related phenomena. Firstly, is alexithymia a continuous and stable trait independent of psychological or somatic symptomology that is developed during childhood? Or is it instead a reactive state induced by trauma and distress at any age, which serves to defend against intense and upsetting emotions? This impacts on treatment options. For example, should we be focussing on early childhood interventions which target the child's emotional environment and parenting to encourage emotional exp...

CONCLUSIONS: Despite the phenomenological overlap between BPD and mood disorders, inquiry about affective instability functions well as a clinically useful screen for BPD in patients with MDD and bipolar disorder. In patients presenting for the treatment of MDD or bipolar disorder, clinicians should screen for BPD in the same way that they screen for other comorbid psychiatric disorders-by inquiring about a single feature of the disorder (ie, affective instability), the presence of which captures almost all patients with the disorder and the absence of which rules out the disorder.
