14th Annual Yale NEABPD BPD Conference:

Emotional Dysregulation in Families: Treatment and Support

New Haven, CT – Friday, May 4, 2018

Videos Coming Soon!

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a serious psychological and psychosocial disorder where people have extreme difficulties regulating their emotions. Problems include intense and volatile emotions (such as shame, anger, sadness or anxiety), chaotic relationships, impulsivity, unstable sense of self, suicide attempts, self-harm, fears of abandonment, and chronic feelings of emptiness. With effective treatment and support, data show that most people with BPD can make great progress, with important gains even in one year across a variety of problem areas.

Many will no longer meet criteria for BPD. Similarly, data show that with help, family members also report big reductions in grief and feelings of burden, as well as an increased sense of mastery and family satisfaction. Over time, 80% of BPD sufferers reduce their symptoms.

NEABPD was initially created as a resource and support group for the families of the BPD diagnosis. NEABPD has now grown to be a large community of both people and information. You don’t have to travel this path alone. There is hope.

Lamotrigine Not Effective Option for Borderline Personality Disorder, Study Finds

While no medications are approved for the treatment of borderline personality disorder (BPD)—which is characterized by sudden changes in mood—several small, short-term studies have suggested mood stabilizers such as lamotrigine may be able to reduce core symptoms of the disorder. A study that compared mental health outcomes in patients with BPD who were prescribed lamotrigine with those prescribed placebo for 12 months found no differences between the two groups. The results were published Friday in AJP in Advance.
