This was our triumphant return to face-to-face meetings at Sanctuary – our first since COVID restrictions began
Many people joined us in person while others joined us on-line.
We played this video with clinical psychologist Dr Ramani Durvasula:
How to Spot the 4 Types of Borderline Personality Disorder
Dr Ramani believes there are four different presentations of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD):
- High Functioning Internalizing (also known as Quiet BPD)
- Angry Externalizing (also known as Impulsive BPD)
- Histrionic (also known as Petulant BPD)
- Depressive internalizing (also known as Self Destructive BPD)
She covered each one in turn, explaining what it is and how treatment might be varied to be more effective for that type.
We paused the video after each type, for a lively discussion. We found we shared a lot in common!
