Article about Borderline Personality Disorder

Posted by gardenergirl on June 7, 2005, at 6:50:25

I received this message from a list serve administered by Ken Pope and thought folks might be interested.

The new issue of *Canadian Medical Association Journal* that will be
released tomorrow (June 7, vol. 172, #12) includes a review article:
"Borderline personality disorder" by Joel Paris.

Here's the abstract: "Borderline Personality Disorder is a chronic
psychiatric disorder characterized by marked impulsivity, instability
mood and interpersonal relationships, and suicidal behaviour that can
complicate medical care. Identifying this diagnosis is important for
treatment planning. Although the cause of borderline personality
is uncertain, most patients improve with time. There is an evidence
for treatment using both psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. The
challenge centres on managing chronic suicidality."

Paris, Department of Psychiatry, McGill University, 1033 Pine Ave. W,
Montréal QC H3A 1A1; fax 514 398-4370; <>.
