Relationship between sexual orientation and psychotic experiences in the general population in England.

CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that there is a positive relationship between sexual orientation and PEs in the general population in England, and that underlying mechanisms may involve BPD traits, loneliness, and stressful life events. Future studies with a longitudinal design are warranted to shed more light on how these factors are implicated in the association between sexual orientation and PEs.

Oxytocin —a hormone that facilitates social bonding in animals—can improve empathy in women with borderline personality disorder (BPD), according to astudy inTranslational Psychiatry. Oxytocin was also associated with an increased desire to become emotionally close to someone.“BPD patients often report problems establishing and maintaining stable relationships to significant others,” wrote Gregor Domes, Ph.D., of the University of Freiburg, Germany, and colleagues. “Their relationships are characterized by a pervasive fear of abandonment, anxiousness, mistrust, and conflicts, which can cu...

AbstractPosttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is inherently complex, yet a growing evidence base indicates that a complex variant (CPTSD) can be distinguished from classic PTSD based on evidence of clinically significant affect, interpersonal, and self/identity dysregulation. This Commentary to theJournal of Traumatic Stress special section on CPTSD reviews the results of four new studies that empirically tested the structure, traumatic stressor antecedents, and construct validity of CPTSD in relation to PTSD and borderline personality disorder (BPD). Based on these and prior empirical findings, a reconceptualization of PTS...

ConclusionsResults show that traditional DSM BPD diagnosis reflects a common core of PD severity, largely composed of LPFS and the pathological traits of anxiousness, depressively, emotional lability, and impulsivity. Results confirm the traditional DSM criterion-based BPD diagnosis can be reliably cross-walked with the full AMPD scheme, and both approaches share substantial construct overlap. This relative equivalence suggests the vast clinical and research literatures associated with BPD may be brought forward with DSM-5-III diagnosis of BPD.

Misdiagnosis is common for patients with a primary diagnosis of borderline personality disorder (BPD) who experience auditory verbal hallucinations (AVHs). AVHs in BPD are associated with severe BPD and high levels of suicidality. Wrongly treating these patients as though they are suffering from schizophrenia or other primary psychotic disorder and not treating BPD can cause significant iatrogenic damage. We outline a specific pattern of symptoms and phenomenology that will assist diagnostic accuracy in these cases. A focused review identified the following characteristic pattern: AVHs in BPD cannot be distinguished phenom...
