Master’s Ranch Helps Boys With Borderline Personality Disorder

Does Your Son Struggle with Borderline Personality Disorder

christian boys homeOur Christian boys home can help your boy with Borderline Personality Disorder, a mental health illness in which he might display atypical levels and variation of moods, unrelenting instability in his interpersonal relationships, self-image and behavior.  Borderline Personality Disorder (also sometimes referred to as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder) might bring about self-loathing, noticeable mood changes set off by perceived rebuff, isolation or failure.  With BDP, he might be excessively sensitive, and his feelings toward others subject, to rapid shifts and changes.  Feelings of insignificance might lead to risky, impulsive and reckless behavior.

If your son struggles with Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder he is likely to experience things (or people) in extremes, either flawless or appalling, something (someone) fantastic one day can be awful the next; very black and white thinking.  This can lead him to negligent actions (in food or med intake, expenses, driving or sex), numerous displays of annoyance or unsuitable anger, self-mutilating or suicidal behavior.

As with many other personality disorders, while the causes for BPD are not established, a combination of environmental, genetic factors and brain chemistry are thought to be causal factors.  Higher risk might also come from a close family member who has the disorder, or from childhood abuse or neglect.  

How is Borderline Personality Disorder is Solved at Master’s Ranch

Without treatment, your son can face grave complications connected to isolation and relationship troubles, money or legal problems, many of those connected to unhealthy habits.

Treatment is primarily therapy-based but can be thorny, because there must be great trust between him and his therapist, something often difficult to achieve because of the swift and extreme mood swings.  Distinctive treatment methods might include interpersonal therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic therapy.

Certain medications are sometimes successful, although they are not a normal part of the protocol.
