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...

One thing I shared with my wife Rachel about a year into our relationship was the time I suffered a nervous breakdown in graduate school. It would be an important moment in any relationship because I shared the time in my life when I was most vulnerable and at my weakest point. Did I technically suffer a nervous breakdown? I’m not sure, all I remember is the turning point came when I drove home late one night, collapsed on my kitchen floor and started crying uncontrollably. Up to that point, I had developed a quasi-schizophrenic outlook on life and could no longer bear the weight of the world-view I constructed. In p...

Purpose of review Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is prevalent, debilitating and clinically challenging. The evolving field of intervention and outcomes in BPD research is considered with a focus on recent research. Recent findings A pattern of clinical and functional improvement is to be expected in patients experiencing BPD. Specialized psychotherapies are shown to be beneficial, but generalist, low-intensity interventions in nonspecialized centres are also showing efficacy. Long-term naturalistic studies show that remission of the disorder is common and promising outcomes are not only possible, but likely. Tr...

CONCLUSIONS: Schema theory proves to be a relevant approach in bipolar disorders, and early maladaptive schemas appear to be important to take into account in clinical practice. Nevertheless, in order to propose schemas therapy appropriately, it is necessary to specify if early maladaptive schemas are activated and to specify therapeutic indications because of clinical heterogeneity. Moreover, data do not yet allow us to understand the disparity of profiles during the inter-episode period. Indeed, a French research perspective is being considered that will prefer a person-oriented approach. PMID: 31767255 [PubMed - as ...

CONCLUSIONS: Nonverbal synchrony in clinical interviews is influenced by inOT, and this effect depends on subject's diagnosis. In line with previous research implying positive associations between nonverbal synchrony and relationship quality, inOT led to an increase of synchrony in healthy controls, but not in patients with BPD. Low levels of synchrony under inOT in patients and its association with childhood trauma suggest that additional mechanisms such as rejection sensitivity might mediate BPD patients' nonverbal behaviour. PRACTITIONER POINTS: Intranasal oxytocin (inOT) attenuated nonverbal synchrony - a proxy fo...
