Borderline Personality Disorder

Does someone you know and possibly love have very erratic mood swings?

Does he or she agree to something one day and the next day says something completely different?

Does that person love you one day and hate you the next, with hardly any detectable transition?

Does that person hate to be alone and feel abandoned or rejected over the tiniest issues?

Is she highly sensitive, to the point where you learn to stifle your spontaneous speech as a way to prevent an outburst?

That person may be suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder.

About 10% of the adult population is estimated to suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder.

Hi Joshua,
There are some well respected treatment providers locally that you might wish to include in your resource list for Oregon Tx providers for BPD...Linehan's model, Dialectical Behavioral Training is a preferred treatment modality currently supported locally by a number of community based human services providers, including the Behavioral Care Network. It is proving very effective per evidence based research. I find it a very useful and humane approach to working with people challenged with Borderline Personaility Disorder. I integrate DBT actively into my practice as an LCSW.
