Stigma & BPD
Written by Patty Fleener, MSW, forBorderline Personality Today.com. Fleener writes: "The trouble about being a client with the diagnosis of borderline personality disorder (BPD) is anytime you speak up for yourself, take a stand in regards to your treatment, ask for a change, ask for another opinion, another case worker, another therapist or Dr., you are commonly accused as exhibiting 'borderline' behavior."

What's in a Name?
"In the disability community this question is a hot topic. In fact, the use of negative language has proven time after time to be a major influence on individual and public attitudes towards people with disabilities often constitutes a major barrier for people with disabilities. However, despite progress being made to use less stigmatizing disability terms, psychiatry has not kept up with these changes. Borderline Personality Disorder, listed in the Axis II section of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM IV), is an example of one such term and the focus of this paper."

Written byElizabeth Bogod, this article is absolutely required reading for anyone dealing with Borderline Personality, regardless of the setting- personal, professional or as someone afflicted with the disorder.
