Nursing care for people with borderline personality disorder in the Freirean perspective.
CONCLUSIONS: Nursing care involved technologies related, medicine administration and physical restraint. There were difficulties in dealing with this disorder. The way to care for nursing, although still permeated by some prejudices, runs through ideologies contained in the ethical assumptions that operate in the light of Freire's work.

Experiential avoidance in adolescents with borderline personality disorder: comparison with a non-BPD psychiatric group and healthy controls.
Abstract Previous research has identified experiential avoidance (EA) as related to a host of adolescent internalizing and externalizing problems, as well as borderline personality disorder, suggesting that it is a crosscutting factor for adolescent psychopathology. It remains unclear whether EA differs among adolescents with BPD compared to adolescents with other psychiatric disorders and healthy adolescents. The aims of this study were to 1) examine EA in adolescents with BPD compared to non-BPD inpatient adolescents and healthy adolescents, and 2) to evaluate whether EA has a unique relationship to borderline p...

My first client: The lioness.
This poem is about a mother who suffered from borderline personality disorder and schizophrenia. The mother recently lost custody of her daughter due to her physical abuse of the child. Both were ordered by the court to attend therapy sessions to improve their attachment. As a family therapist, I struggled to keep a balance between empathizing with, and challenging the mother. I wrote this poem and used it in session to help the mother appreciate the effect of her aggressive behaviors on her daughter.

Borderline personality disorder: from understanding ontological addiction to psychotherapeutic revolution.
Authors: Ducasse D, Van Gordon W, Brand-Arpon V, Courtet P, Olié E Abstract Bypassing a reductionist view of existing diagnostic categories, ontological addiction theory (OAT) is a new psychological model of human functioning. Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), defined as "a pattern of instability in interpersonal relationships, self-image and affects, and marked impulsivity", is not only common (up to 20% of psychiatric inpatients), but also strongly associated with suicide attempts and death by suicide. Therefore, BPD constitutes a major public health concern. As a consequence of an underlyin...

A Life Span Perspective on Borderline Personality Disorder
AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo provide an update of a life span perspective on borderline personality disorder (BPD). We address the life span course of BPD, and discuss possible implications for assessment, treatment, and research.Recent FindingsBPD first manifests itself in adolescence and can be distinguished reliably from normal adolescent development. The course of BPD from adolescence to late life is characterized by a symptomatic switch from affective dysregulation, impulsivity, and suicidality to maladaptive interpersonal functioning and enduring functional impairments, with subsequent remission and relapse.

Negative affect moderates the effect of social rejection on frontal and anterior cingulate cortex activation in borderline personality disorder.
Abstract Patients with borderline personality disorder (BPD) have a heightened sensitivity to social exclusion. Experimental manipulations have produced inconsistent findings and suggested that baseline negative affect (NA) might influence the experience of exclusion. We administered a standardized social exclusion protocol (Cyberball paradigm) in BPD (n = 39) and age-matched and sex-matched healthy controls (n = 29) to investigate the association of NA on social exclusion and activation in brain regions previously implicated in this paradigm. Compared with controls, patients with BPD showed higher activation duri...

Borderline personality disorder and eating disorders: a trans-diagnostic approach to unravelling diagnostic complexity.
CONCLUSIONS: Trans-diagnostic elements can be identified across the two syndromes. Trans-diagnostic elements appear to include some shared aetiological factors as well as some shared syndromal components. The shared syndromal components include problems with affect, interpersonal problems, problems with self-concept and impulsivity. The pathoplastic effects of culture, attitudes to fatness and the neurobiology of starvation and/or restriction of intake are crucial to integrate into the understanding of co-morbidity of these two disorders. Trans-diagnostic approaches to treatment lead to trans-diagnostic improvements across...

Psychopharmacological treatment of patients with borderline personality disorder: comparing data from routine clinical care with recommended guidelines.
Conclusions: The present study shows that in routine clinical care settings psychotropic medications are frequently prescribed to patients with BPD, very often resulting in polypharmacy. A positive association between the number of medications and the effectiveness of the inpatient treatment program, as well as the absence of a relationship between number of medications and comorbidity contradicts the often suggested iatrogenic effect of polypharmacy. Key points Guidelines for pharmacotherapy of borderline personality disorders lack consensus Yet, clinicians frequently prescribe psychotropic medications to BPD patients Typ...

Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder: Is Supply Adequate to Meet Public Health Needs?
CONCLUSIONS: Shortages of both providers available to treat BPD and providers certified in specialist treatments of BPD exist in most of the 22 countries studied. In well-resourced countries, training clinicians to provide generalist or abbreviated treatments for BPD, in addition to specialist treatments, could help address the current implementation gap. More resource-efficient alternatives must be considered in countries with insufficient staff to implement even generalist treatments. Consideration of realistic allocation of care may shape future guidelines and standards of BPD treatments, beyond intensive evidence-based...

Enhanced Processing of Painful Emotions in Patients With Borderline Personality Disorder: A Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
Previous research has demonstrated that patients with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) are more sensitive to negative emotions and often show poor cognitive empathy, yet preserved or even superior emotional empathy. However, little is known about the neural correlates of empathy. Here, we examined empathy for pain in 20 patients with BPD and 19 healthy controls in an fMRI study, which comprised an empathy for pain paradigm showing facial emotions prior to hands exposed to painful stimuli. We found a selectively enhanced activation of the right supramarginal gyrus for painful hand pictures following painful facial expr...

The lived experience of recovery in borderline personality disorder: a qualitative study
ConclusionRecovery in BPD is a non-linear, ongoing process, facilitated by the interaction between stages and processes. Whilst clinical aspects are targets of specialist interventions, greater emphasis on fostering individual motivation, hope, engagement in relationships, activities, and treatment, may be required within clinical practice for a holistic recovery approach.

AbstractPersonality disorders (PD) are common and burdensome mental disorders. The treatment of individuals with PD represents one of the more challenging areas in the field of mental health and health care providers need evidence-based recommendations to best support patients with PDs. Clinical guidelines serve this purpose and are formulated by expert consensus and/or systematic reviews of the current evidence. In this review, European guidelines for the treatment of PDs are summarized and evaluated. To date, eight countries in Europe have developed and published guidelines that differ in quality with regard to recency a...

148. Non-Suicidal Self-Injury: Neurobiological Findings From Animal Models
Neuropsychiatric disorders are broadly defined and categorized according to clusters of behavioural symptoms. However, symptom expression can be heterogeneous within diagnostic categories and homogeneous across diagnostic categories. Accordingly, many recent investigations have focused upon identification and treatment of specific behavioural phenotypes. Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) is a phenotype that is highly prevalent in neuropsychiatric disorders, including Borderline Personality Disorder. (Source: Biological Psychiatry)

O8. Computational Phenotyping in Borderline Personality Using a Role-Based Social Hierarchy Probe
Dysfunction in social interactions is a hallmark of several psychiatric disorders. There has thus been a substantial recent interest in characterizing aberrant and normal social decision-making using games from experimental economics. However, these studies have so far covered only a small range of social interactions. One important omission has been social dominance. A maladaptive reaction to social dominance may be particularly relevant for neuropsychiatric disorders such as borderline personality disorder (BPD) in which there is trouble sustaining social relations.
