Trust and treatment of borderline personality disorder


“Trust is key in treating borderline personality disorder.” 

That’s the title of the front-page report in the October, 2021 issue of Clinical Psychiatry News, in which I offer my own thoughts and professional experiences.

In the language of NPSP25, anyone with a predominantly Mercurial style may be on a continuum that, if extreme, could signal the possibility of BPD.

BPD can be quite impairing, and it can be stressful for caring family and friends, who may not know how to help.   So you might want to take a look at the full report —here— to  understand why trust is a foundation of good, compassionate treatment.
