BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER THERAPY
The treatment for borderline disorder includes individual, or group psychotherapy carried out by professionals within the community mental health team (CMHT). Their goal is to provide support and treatment while giving as much independence as possible. A typical CMHT is made up of social workers, pharmacists, community mental health nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, and occupational therapists.
The treatment for borderline personality disorder usually involves some psychological therapy, also known as psychotherapy. There are many different types. Yet all revolve around the core principle of helping you better understand how you think and feel.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a specific type of therapy solely designed to treat people with BPD. It is based on the notion that two critical factors contribute towards BPD:
1. You are emotionally vulnerable – for example, an upcoming event will make you highly anxious.
2. You were brought up in an environment where emotions were never validated – for example, parents told you that your uneasy feelings are nothing except silly thoughts.
Both these factors contribute to feeling different intense emotions because you feel guilty for the way you think. Due to your upbringing, you feel worthless, and in your eyes, you consider yourself a wrong person. These thoughts will further shove upsetting emotions.
The primary goal of DBT is to break this vicious cycle by validating your emotions. Another way to treat DBT is by using dialectics. Dialectics is a school of thought that teaches you to be open to ideas which contradict your own. The DBT therapist will use both techniques to bring the necessary change in the patient’s life.
Mentalization-based therapy (MBT)
This is another type of long-term psychotherapy treatment that is based on the concept that people dealing with BPD have an inadequate capacity to mentalize. You can think about thinking. They are examining your thoughts, beliefs and analyzing their worth based on reality.
Besides these therapies, art is also used to treat BPD with a group as part of a treatment program. It includes dance, drama, and music therapy. Medicines have not yet proven futile in this regard.
