ConclusionsEvaluating social cues that signal the willingness to affiliate is characterized by a negative bias that seems to be a trait-like feature of social cognition in BPD. In contrast, confidence in judging positive social signals seems to be a state-like feature of emotion recognition in BPD that improves with attenuation in the level of acute BPD symptoms.

Interpersonal Community Psychiatric Treatment (ICPT) was developed to provide this group of patients a focus, a theoretical view,...

WagnerAbstractBorderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a severe psychiatric disorder characterized by behavioral dysregulation, emotion dysregulation, disturbances in self-identity, and social functioning. Despite the existence of evidence-based psychotherapeutic interventions for BPD, these interventions have important limitations (e.g., limited treatment efficacy). Furthermore, little evidence exists for the efficaciousness of pharmacological interventions for BPD. Thus, a strong need f...

Authors: Bozzatello P, Rocca P, De Rosa ML, Bellino S Abstract Introduction: The treatment of borderline personality disorder (BPD) remains an open question for clinicians. There is scarce evidence available and the guidelines' conclusions diverge. Together with these factors, the complexity of BPD generates uncertainty in day-to-day practice. This narrative review aims to provide an overview of advances in BPD treatment and posit a critical opinion based on clinical evidence and practice.Areas covered: The authors review the clinical trials concerning the efficacy of the main classes of drugs in BPD: antidepressan...
