AbstractThe debate around the construct validity of complex posttraumatic stress disorder (CPTSD) has begun to examine whether CPTSD diverges from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) when it co ‐occurs with the diagnosis of borderline personality disorder (BPD). The present study (a) examined the construct validity of CPTSD through a latent class analysis of a non–treatment‐seeking sample of young trauma‐exposed adults and (b) characterized each class in terms of trauma characteris tics, social emotions (e.g., shame, guilt, blame), and interpersonal functioning. A total of 23 dichotomized survey items were cho...

Authors: Trifu SC, Tudor A, Radulescu I Abstract Aggressive behavior is one of the main characteristics of different psychiatric disorders such as: personality disorders (antisocial personality disorder, borderline personality disorder), schizophrenia, intermittent explosive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, depression, alcohol/substance induced psychiatric disorders. Epidemiological evidence shows that always there is a higher risk of violence and aggressivity among patients with psychiatric disorders compared with general population. Researchers have tried many times to narrow the theori...

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...

Women with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) associated with childhood abuse improved significantly with both dialectical behavior therapy for PTSD (DBT-PTSD) and cognitive processing therapy (CPT), with DBT-PTSD resulting in slightly more favorable outcomes, according to astudy published Wednesday inJAMA Psychiatry.“Currently, treatment for [PTSD associated with childhood abuse] mostly relies on established treatments that were developed for survivors of adult-onset trauma,” wrote Martin Bohus, M.D., Ph.D., of Heidelberg University in Germany and colleagues. “Most treatment guidelines recommend prolon...

Therapy and the Brain It seems ironic that after Freud, as a neurologist, abandoned his studies on brain functioning to replace them with the studies of the unconscious — and that he actually abandoned his studies on traumatization — the trauma therapy world is arriving to a point comparable to the point where he started: the understanding of the brain as the basis of understanding the mind. Trauma therapy is leveraging neuroscience because having an understanding of how traumatization affects the brain helps to not only dismantle common misconceptions and to stop victim-blaming statements, but it also explains...

ConclusionThis study demonstrates considerable variation of social cognitive capacity among BPD patients and good outcomes for patients with mainly ToM errors of hypermentalizing. It also indicates that poorly responding patients may represent a cohort with more complex problems of social cognition and insufficient mentalizing.

Has anyone else noticed that clinicians seem to be assuming that chronic suicidality equals a definitive diagnosis of BPD more and more, without doing a good differential? I mean, with chronic suicidality, BPD should definitely be on the differential list, but it's not the only disorder that can lead to this (MDD, Persistent Depressive Disorder, PTSD, etc), nor is it sufficient to diagnosis BPD in and of itself. It remains me of the old (and still somewhat prevalent) idea that non-suicidal... Borderline Personality Disorder as a "dumping ground" diagnosis for chronic suicidality?

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is defined as a fear-based disorder with several features necessary for a formal diagnosis which include: avoidance behaviors, re-experiencing, increased arousal and negative affect and/or cognition.1 Avoidance behaviors may include avoiding people, places or situations that could be emotionally ‘triggering’ of a traumatic event. For example, some veterans may avoid amusement parks or festivities that have fireworks or excessive noise as it may cause flashbacks or anxiety. Re-experiencing behaviors often include emotional flashbacks, intrusive thoughts or nightmares. Someon...

By nature, humans are wired for connection. We seek out others to share our lives with, with the goal of forming lasting and intimate bonds. So feeling trapped or abandoned in an intimate relationship shouldn’t be a common thing, should it? Actually, these experiences are common for partners who wind up repeating cycles within intimate relationships that they may be unaware of. Feeling trapped or abandoned are commonly seen in the push-pull dynamic found in unhealthy relationships; both styles often represent two sides of the same coin. Engulfment and Abandonment Defined Fear of being engulfed, or trapped, is often i...
