CONCLUSIONS: Violence in BPD patients is expressed particularly towards intimate partners and known persons, usually in the homes of perpetrators. Anger, impulsivity and avoiding abandonment are traits associated with violence while suicidal behaviour, identity disturbance and affective instability are not. These patients are disproportionately found in higher levels of secure care although most violence occurs in the community. In males it is more likely driven by substance use, often at transition from adolescence to adulthood, while more severe borderline pathology is implicated in women. Early identification of an at-r...

Mentalizing-based treatment (MBT) has developed over the last 2 decades as a coherent conceptual framework, and it is increasing as an empirically supported approach to borderline personality disorder, family treatment of children and adolescents, eating disorders, and self-harming adolescents. In this Extended Workshop, participants will learn about: 1) how mentalizing capacities develop in the context of attachment relationships; and 2) the impact of neurodevelopmental changes in the mentalizing capacities of adolescents.

manlou-Holloway Psychiatric hospitalization for a suicide attempt (SA), rather than suicide ideation (SI) alone, is a stronger risk indicator for eventual suicide death. Yet, little is known about demographic and clinical characteristics differentiating those admitted for SA versus SI. Understanding these differences has implications for assessment and treatment. A retrospective review of electronic medical records (EMRs) was performed on service members (n = 955) admitted for SA or SI at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center between 2001–2006. Service members hospitalized for SA were younger compared to those ...

Authors: Wongpakaran N, Wongpakaran T, Kuntawong P Abstract The study aimed to development a short screening scale for borderline personality disorder (Short-Bord), and to validate its psychometric properties using Rasch analysis. Ninety-eight outpatients undergoing psychotherapy were evaluated using a semistructured diagnostic interview for DSM-IV Personality disorders. Correlational analysis and Rasch analysis were used to identify the best-fitted items for the shorter scale. Rasch analysis identified three underfitted items. The best five items were selected for the Short-Bord using two analyses, resulting in tw...

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. Participants were 208 adolescent psychiatric inpatients. BPD symptoms, measured via structured interview, correlated more strongly with self-reported BN than AN symptoms. 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...
