Out of all of the personality disorders, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is the most universally prevalent personality disorder. Sixty percent of the patients receiving some form of mental health services suffer from BPD. Clinical nuances particular to BPD include unstable social relations, poor impulse control, difficulty controlling mood, and an insecure self-image. Most mental health professionals describe profound difficulties in working with these patients. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the well-recognized therapeutic model for the treatment of BPD and is thought to be the “gold standard” for the management of BPD.
