In this study, we examined the prevalence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in 3800 psychiatric outpatients with different principal diagnoses. For all disorders identified as a principal diagnosis, we compared patients' odds ratios of PTSD to all other patients in the sample. Approximately one-sixth of the sample (n = 663, 17.4%) was diagnosed with PTSD, including 417 patients with current PTSD and 246 with PTSD in partial remission. Patients with principal bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder (MDD) demonstrated higher rates of PTSD compared with those without principal bipolar and MDD. For most psychiatri...

AbstractResearch on psychotherapies for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is increasingly focused on understanding not only which treatments work but why and for whom they work. The present pilot study evaluated the temporal relations between five hypothesized change targets —posttraumatic cognitions, guilt, shame, general emotion dysregulation, and experiential avoidance—and PTSD severity among women with PTSD, borderline personality disorder, and recent suicidal and/or self‐injurious behaviors. Participants (N = 26) were randomized to receive 1 year of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) with or without t...

While BPD patients continue suffering from distress and aversive emotions, therapists and relatives feel often stunned and helpless when confronted with suicidality resulting in interruption of therapies, repeated presentations to emergency rooms and referrals to hospitals. Reviewing the current knowledge of the functions and background of non-suicidal self-injury, we learned that reinforcement mechanisms play an important role to understand why individuals ...

Authors: Ghinea D, Parzer P, Resch F, Kaess M, Edinger A Abstract The Association Between Illicit Drug Use, Borderline Personality Disorder and Depression in a Help-Seeking Sample of Adolescents Risk-taking behavior is a common phenomenon in adolescence.
