What is Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)?
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) can be a debilitating mental health disorder that impacts the way you think and feel about yourself and others, causing problems functioning in everyday life. Diagnostic criteria for BPD includes self image issues, difficulty managing emotions and behavior, and a pattern of unstable relationships.
What is the best BPD treatment?
BPD can be extremely challenging to navigate. Often, those suffering from BPD and receiving outpatient BPD treatment services still struggle with the day-to-day issues that borderline personality disorder brings up.
In times like these, coaching or case management services can enable BPD sufferers to thrive without needing a higher level of care. Coaching and case management services with a qualified professional or agency can help individuals with BPD receive the care and support they need to lead fulfilling and successful lives.
Benefits of coaching and case management to treat BPD
Those with borderline personality disorder benefit from coaching and case management in the following ways:
- Filling in the gaps left by traditional outpatient care. People with BPD often have a therapist, psychiatrist, and other outpatient providers. However, these providers aren’t always available when a crisis hits or when extra support is needed. In these times, a coach can step in to fill in the gaps left by traditional outpatient care.
- Providing a point person for BPD Care Coordination. Keeping providers on the same page can be very difficult. A coach or case manager is able to step into the role of coordinating providers to ensure that everyone is working towards the same goal. This service can be invaluable when dealing with a diagnosis as complex as BPD.
- Individualized Skills Coaching and Practice in the Community. Coaching and case management for BPD allows you to practice and hone the skills you learn in therapy out in your life and in the community. With a coach at your side, you can practice your skills work where it matters most and get real-time feedback and support. This will help bridge the gap between talking about skills in therapy and putting them into practice to make your life better.
