What is BPD?

So what exactly is BPD or Borderline Personality Disorder? BPD is categorized in the personality disorder category and affects nearly every aspect of that person’s life. People who suffer from BPD often have trouble dealing with unstable emotions, relationships, and behavioral issues. In many cases during BPD treatment through EMDR therapy, we find that trauma and traumatic experiences are at the root of the problem. In some cases, people with BPD want and need help with emotional regulation and interpersonal relationships, they just need the right treatment options. Other times, people with BPD believe there is nothing wrong with them or that they can figure it out on their own. At Revibe Therapy in Winter Park, we’re here to tell you that you don’t have to do it alone. Whether you choose BPD treatment through EMDR therapy with us, DBT, or another avenue for help, it’s important to reach out to someone for assistance.

BPD Symptoms

BPD does not present itself the same in every person, but there are often some shared or common symptoms across those with BPD. Common symptoms of BPD include but are not limited to:

  • Difficulty creating healthy boundaries
  • Difficulty regulating emotions
  • Self-mutilating and other self-harm behavior
  • Susceptibility to addiction
  • Anti-social behavior
  • Impulsivity
  • Difficulty maintaining quality relationships
  • Susceptibility to addiction

Some also find it helpful to know that many people in need of BPD treatment are associated with and can fall victim to narcissists. Because people with BPD struggle to set healthy boundaries and have a poor sense of self-worth, narcissists tend to latch on. This is because narcissists take advantage of these characteristics and find it easier to manipulate and control those with BPD. Unfortunately, this often worsens the state of the person suffering from BPD and can sometimes lead them to spiral into self-mutilating behaviors.

BPD Treatment

DBT (Dialectic Behavioral Therapy) is the most common form of BPD treatment. However, at Revibe Therapy, we believe that EMDR therapy can be just as effective in BPD treatment. This is because many people that are dealing with BPD are also carrying around associated trauma. EMDR therapy helps to dig to the root of the trauma and helps you work past it. Once the associated trauma is addressed, BPD treatment becomes much more manageable.
