Course Overview

Affecting 1.6% of the adult population, borderline personality disorder (BPD) is common, albeit less well known, than bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. However, the lifetime prevalence of BPD is estimated at 5.9%, and these patients often suffer from other psychiatric disorders. The lack of widespread awareness of BPD among primary caregivers and the public is a factor in the delay in diagnosis and treatment. Patient denial and incomplete assessment of defining behaviors also contribute to underdiagnosis. Many clinicians have counter-therapeutic responses such as negative emotional reactions and anger when they perceive they have been manipulated by a patient with BPD, hindering the therapeutic relationship. Nurses often report that dealing with patients with BPD is more difficult than dealing with those with any other disorder.  This activity provides information on characteristics that individuals with BPD exhibit, coexisting disorders, and treatment options for the disorder.
