Sample text

Disclosure of a BPD diagnosis also allows patients and their families to access treatments specific for the disorder. Participation in treatments like Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) as outlined by Linehan (1993), or the Systems Training for Emotional Predictability and Problem Solving (STEPPS) as outlined by Blum et al. (2002), require awareness of the BPD diagnosis. Communicating a diagnosis of BPD may be a boon to clinicians as well (Lequesne & Hersh, 2004). Clinicians faced with a group of treatment-seeking patients, often presenting in crisis, will be better able to avoid iatrogenic complications such as cumbersome, dangerous polypharmacy regimens and unnecessary, regressing hospitalizations, if patients, family members and other treaters are clear about the centrality of borderline pathology in any specific case.

Other research has demonstrated that shortterm stays in partial hospital settings significantly improve anxiety, depression, and parasuicidality (Gratz, LaCrosse, & Gunderson). These studies offer hope that future treatment of borderline patients may evolve into a sequence of goals with a corresponding sequence of modalities appropriate for each goal. The more discrete the goals and the duration of the treatment, the less significant prior training in either cognitive-behavioral or psychodynamic technique would be required.
