Borderline personality disorder is a mental health disorder that impacts the way you think and feel about yourself and others, causing problems functioning in everyday life. It includes self-image issues, difficulty managing emotions and behavior, and a pattern of unstable relationships.
With borderline personality disorder, you have an intense fear of abandonment or instability, and you may have difficulty tolerating being alone. Yet inappropriate anger, impulsiveness and frequent mood swings may push others away, even though you want to have loving and lasting relationships.
Schema therapy can help individuals identify the thought and behavior patterns underlying and perpetuating mental health conditions. Dr. Jeffrey Young began the development of schema therapy in the mid-1980s after he found cognitive behavioral therapy to be less helpful for some individuals than others, particularly those with chronic characterological concerns. He combined concepts from Gestalt, object relations, constructivist, and psychoanalytic approaches into a unified modality that focused on the particular strengths of each method.
The first Schema Therapy Institute opened in Manhattan in the 1990s. A number of studies conducted with the approach found it to be a highly effective treatment for borderline personality, and research further developing schema therapy and demonstrating its efficacy continues today. More recently, schema therapy has also been combined with mindfulness meditation to form a more spiritual approach.
In this course, you will learn everything about how to treat Borderline Personality Disorder using Schema Therapy. We will cover the basics as well as some advanced practices for counselling clients and treating their mental Issues.
