Does Your Son Struggle With
Borderline Personality Disorder?
Resolution Ranch Academy Can Help Your Son
Resolution Ranch Academy can help your son with Borderline Personality Disorder, a mental health illness in which he might exhibit unusual depth and variation of moods, unrelenting instability in his interpersonal relationships, self-image and demeanor. Borderline Personality Disorder (also sometimes referred to as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder) might bring about self-hatred, marked changes in mood triggered by perceived rebuff, seclusion or failure. With BDP, he might be hypersensitive to criticism, and his feelings toward others subject to rapid shifts and changes. Feelings of unimportance might lead to impulsive and reckless behavior.
If your son struggles with 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 dangerously negligent actions (in food or drug intake, spending money, with driving or sex), frequent displays of annoyance or unacceptable anger, self-mutilating or suicidal behavior.
As with many other personality disorders, while the causes for BPD are not established, a combination of environmental, genetic factors and brain chemistry are thought to be contributors. Higher risk might also come from a close family member who has the disorder, or from childhood abuse or neglect.
Treatment For Borderline Personality Disorder at Resolution Ranch Academy
Left untreated, your child can face serious complications related to isolation and relationship problems, financial or legal problems, many of those connected to substance abuse.
Treatment is primarily therapy-based but can be complicated, because there must be a great deal of trust between your son and his therapist, something often difficult to achieve because of the swift and extreme mood swings. Distinctive treatment methods might include interpersonal therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and psycho dynamic therapy.
Certain medications are sometimes successful, although they are not a normal part of the protocol.
