A borderline personality disorder is a pervasive pattern of unstable interpersonal relationships and instability of sense of self.
Clinical psychologist Jeanie Cavé tells Eusebius McKasier that a person with a borderline personality disorder has a difficult time with interpersonal relationships.
She says the picture of borderline personality disorder is painted badly on the internet.
A borderline personality disorder is always like a black mark against a patient's name. A person with a borderline personality disorder is harder to treat, less inclined to self-help and is extremely manipulative.— Jeanie Cavé, Clinical psychologist
Cavé says there is controversy in diagnosing the personality disorders.
A lot of the symptoms that are used for diagnosis are actually part of normal human functioning that everybody experiences from time to time.— Jeanie Cavé, Clinical psychologist
How can we say something is a diagnosis if there is considered to be no real treatment that would result in the resolution of the diagnosis.— Jeanie Cavé, Clinical psychologist
The research now says borderline personality disorder is as a result of trauma and I can agree with that and I can say the same for narcissism and sociopathy.— Jeanie Cavé, Clinical psychologist
