We Can Help Your Boy With Borderline Personality Disorder
Agapé can help your son with Borderline Personality Disorder, a mental health illness in which he might exhibit unusual levels of depth and variation of moods, persistent instability in his interpersonal relationships, self-image and conduct. Borderline Personality Disorder (also sometimes referred to as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder) might bring about self-loathing, marked change in mood triggered by perceived rejection, seclusion or failure. With BDP, he might be overly sensitive to correction, and his feelings toward others subject to rapid shifts and changes. Feelings of insignificance might lead to risky behavior.
If your boy suffers from Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder he is likely to see things (or people) in black and white, either perfect or terrible, something (someone) wonderful one day can be appalling the next; very extreme thinking. This can lead him to dangerous actions (in food or drug consumption, driving or sex), frequent displays of annoyance or inappropriate anger, self-mutilating or suicidal behavior.
As with many other personality disorders, while the causes for BPD are not known, a combination of environmental, genetic factors and brain chemistry are thought to be causal contributors. Higher risk might also come from a close family member who has the disorder, or from childhood abuse or neglect.
Agapé Boarding School – We Can Help Your Son with Borderline Personality Disorder
Left untreated, your son can face serious complications related to isolation and relationship problems, financial or legal problems, many of those related to self-destructive behavior.
Treatment is primarily therapy-based but can be complicated, because there must be a great deal of trust between your boy and his therapist, something often difficult to achieve because of the swift and extreme mood swings. Distinctive treatment might include interpersonal therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic therapy.
