Education as an Early Treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder

Hosted by Mary C. Zanarini, EdD, McLean Hospital.

BPDPSYCHOED, an internet-based treatment, was developed for two reasons. First, many patients with BPD are not told of their borderline diagnosis. Second, many of those who are informed of their borderline diagnosis are not given up-to-date information about BPD. This evidence-based treatment was developed to deal with both of these practices, which interfere with BPD patients being able to make informed decisions about their future. The ethical and clinical implications of this treatment are discussed.
