Borderline personality disorder (BPD) can make everything about a person feel unstable. Whether it’s variations in mood, behavior, relationships, or thoughts, it can cause people with this condition to be quickly triggered by things others may not notice or react to. But it can also be treated effectively, allowing people to live less tumultuous lives.
So how can we recognize the condition in ourselves and others? Are there ways to determine what and when treatments will work? And is it really possible to manage triggers?
Join us as Lois W. Choi-Kain, MD, MEd, discusses signs and symptoms of BPD, explains the differences between treatment options, and answers audience questions about borderline personality disorder.
