One of the least known but most frequently encountered personality problems in clinical practice is borderline personality disorder (BPD). People with this problem have a weak personality. They often suffer mood swings, angry attacks and constant doubts that make it difficult for them to have relationships with others.
People who suffer from this disorder live to the limit, with ultra-sensitive emotions. They may be calm, but in an instant they change and may feel angry, anxious or desperate. Live all relationships in an intense way and they have a constant instability with those who live and with whom they relate.
Triggers and treatment for BPD
The cause of this disorder is unknown, but is believed to be related to family, social and genetic factors. Risk factors may include dissociated family life, abandonment or fear of abandonment in childhood or adolescence, poor communication in the family environment, and sexual, physical or emotional abuse.
The borderline personality disorder presents itself differently in each person and this makes it difficult for psychologists to make a clear diagnosis. However, with sessions and proper treatment it is possible to overcome and control this situation that affects the lives of many.
