Good Psychiatric Management
The willingness to improve and treat their condition plays a large role in a patient's success. While dialectical behavioral therapy, medication, and other forms of talk therapy can help someone with borderline personality disorder adopt more adaptive models of behavior and thinking, a lack of motivation or resistance to treatment will lead to poor outcomes.
Patients with borderline personality disorder must understand ongoing treatment with a therapist they trust can help them overcome their symptoms with time and patience. A therapist can help someone with borderline personality disorder manage symptoms that often seem to come out of nowhere. Managing borderline personality disorder alone is difficult, especially in the earliest stages of treatment when there is a lack of sense awareness, greater impulsivity, and unstable emotions.
Even after symptoms have been reduced, good psychiatric management can help a patient develop the skills they need to thrive beyond the present. Regardless of whether emotions or thinking patterns emerge in the future, a therapist can provide the support and strategy patients to help navigate their relationships with themselves and others.
