Emotional Rollercoaster: Borderline Personality Disorder Pt6


Dr. Phil continues his discussion on borderline personality disorder (BPD). He emphasizes that BPD exists on a behavioral continuum and can be present to varying degrees.


Dr. Phil cautions against assuming that all individuals with BPD have experienced childhood abuse, as there are various factors that contribute to the disorder. He dispels the myths and misconceptions of this disorder including that BPD only affects women, noting that it is equally prevalent among men. Educate yourself and seek support if you are dealing with BPD in your own life or the lives of others.
