AbstractNo treatment has been approved and recognized as effective in borderline personality disorder (BPD). Impulsivity is a key dimension because it is a predictor of remission but also suicide. The purpose of this review is to establish an inventory on the management of impulsivity in BPD and determine the effective treatments. A systematic review on the PubMed and Ovid databases was conducted up to September 2019 to December 2019 using the PRISMA guidelines. The inclusion criteria were: studies with patients with borderline personality disorder, were published between 1989 and 2019, used English-language and evaluated ...

Authors: Brogan K, Jarvi A, Klopf H, Turner T Abstract Background: This case report illustrates that the use of a series of lifestyle interventions delivered via the "Vital Mind Reset" online program led to the resolution of disabling psychiatric symptoms.

ConclusionThis study shows that there is a significant overrepresentation of Travellers in mental health services, suggesting significant need for accessible and acceptable interventions. Those with a BPD diagnosis have a significantly higher risk of self-harm, representing an ultra-high-risk population. These findings can be used to plan future service development projects to better meet the needs of this population: they may require specially adapted version of the mentalisation-based treatment programme.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the clinical and neuropsychological effects of rTMS on the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex (DMPFC) in BPD patients. METHODS: Fourteen patients with BPD were randomized into two groups (active vs. sham) for 15 sessions of rTMS on the DMPFC. Clinical effects were measured using the Borderline Symptoms List (BSL), Clinical Global Impression Scale for BPD (CGI-BPD), Borderline Evaluation of Severity over Time (BEST), Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HDRS), Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (HARS), and Barratt's Impulsiveness Scale (BIS). Neuropsychological effects were determined by ...

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...

CONCLUSION: These findings suggest that impulsive psychiatric features and maladaptive defense style may be related to suicidal risk in patients with BPD. Therefore, our findings may help clinicians in estimating the risk of suicide in patients with BPD. PMID: 32791818 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
