Ozark Trails Academy understands that you want to find help now for your teen boy or girl who struggles with Borderline Personality Disorder.
About Borderline Personality Disorder
We can help your teen who suffers with Borderline Personality Disorder, a mental health illness in which they show great and persistent instability in their self-image, conduct and interpersonal relationships.
Borderline Personality Disorder (also sometimes referred to as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder) might bring about self-loathing, discernible mood changes that are triggered by perceived rebuff, seclusion or failure. With BDP, you might see excessive sensitivity to critique, and feelings toward others subject to rapid shifts and changes. Feelings of insignificance might lead to risky, impulsive and reckless behavior.
As with many other personality disorders, while there are not established causes for BPD, factors are likely a combination of genetics, environment and brain chemistry. Higher risk might also come if a close family member has the disorder, or from childhood abuse or neglect.
Without treatment, your child can face grave complications connected to relationship troubles and legal or financial problems, many of those related to risky activities.
Primarily therapy-based, treatment can be thorny; there must be great trust between your child and therapist, something often difficult to achieve because of the swift and extreme mood swings. Distinctive treatment types might include interpersonal therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic therapy.
Certain medications are sometimes successful, although they are not a normal part of the protocol.
