Trauma-based & Family Psychotherapy For Angry, Anxious, Depressed, and Frustrated Families

Borderline Personality And Connections To Trauma

Borderline Personality DisorderBorderline personality disorder (BPD) is complicated. It may take years before it is correctly identified or diagnosed.

For many of my young female clients, the most terrifying part of the disorder, for them, is the emotional chaos and disconnectedness that can occur in moments of intense emotions

In this article (and video), I discuss the connection between BPD and traumatic histories.

Suffering and Treatment

BPD is a very challenging and complex disorder to treat. Dr. Blaise Aguirre, a recognized child and adolescent researcher of BPD, states that about 11% of clients with the disorder end up in outpatient settings, while about 20% are in inpatient settings with a comorbid diagnosis.

That 20% cannot thrive outside of a structured mental health setting. Relationship patterns are often difficult and emotionally chaotic. Impulse control is very poor. Frequent self-defeating thoughts may arise daily. And suicidal thoughts and self-harm are often lurking around the corner for many.

 

Understanding BPD and Trauma

We must keep in mind that not everyone with BPD reacts the same or experiences life in the same way. In the following videos, I am describing those with difficult symptoms.

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

As we get closer to the middle of May states across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

Unfortunately, Gov. Wolf hasn't reduced the mask wearing restrictions in Allegheny County. However, he has announced most of Western PA will be moving to the yellow phase beginning May 15. This means that we can slowly regain some normalcy.

But until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated Anchored Child & Family Counseling will remain closed. I will be making small transitions back to the office over the course of summer and seeing some clients in-person based on need.The office will be open starting June 17, 2020 with the goal of remaining open until/if state laws change in response to Corona virus restrictions.

In the meantime, I will be continuing teletherapy sessions until mid-June. My office assistant and I will be monitoring your insurance policy to ensure that you will be covered for teletherapy and that your copayments will be waived. At this time, it appears that all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy.

Please check www.anchoredinknowledge.com (the practice website) for updates and my business facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/anchoredchild.

Please continue to stay safe!
Thank you
