Course Description:
 
This course is based upon a journal article which reviews the current treatment literature for Borderline personality disorder. It briefly reviews the diagnostic criteria, incidence and researched based evidence into causal factors. It goes on to review the treatment literature including both psychosocial and pharmacological interventions. It is a great review of empirical literature that full of details and specifics and sure to help clinicians improve their treatment planning and interventions with borderline clients.
 
According to the abstract – Borderline personality disorder is characterized by a pervasive pattern of instability in affect regulation, impulse control, interpersonal relationships, and self-image. Clinical signs of the disorder include emotional deregulation, impulsive aggression, repeated self-injury, and chronic suicidal tendencies, which make these patients frequent users of mental health resources. Causal factors are only partly known, but genetic factors and adverse events during childhood, such as physical and sexual abuse, contribute to the development of the disorder. Dialectical behavior therapy and psychodynamic partial hospital programs are effective treatments for out-of-control patients, and drug therapy can reduce depression, anxiety, and impulsive aggression. More research is needed for the understanding and management of this disabling clinical condition. Current strategies are focusing on the neurobiological underpinnings of the disorder and the development and dissemination of better and more cost-effective treatments to clinicians. -
 
Clinical social workers, psychiatric nurses, psychologists, professional counselors, drug counselor, and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course on borderline personality disorder. This course may also be helpful for dieticians and nutritionists who work with clients with mental illness. This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their knowledge of and clinical skills with clients who are diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.
