Do I trust or not trust? Do I love or do I hate? Do I live or do I die?
The client with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is caught in an internal battle rooted in their childhood traumatic experiences. Rather than experiencing others as a haven of safety, traumatized individuals with BPD are driven by powerful wishes and fears of relationship. Attachment failure is inevitable in trauma - resulting in intense emotions and impulsive behaviours that leave destructive imprints on their relationships.
When we understand the relationship between BPD and Traumatic Attachment disorders, we can transform our treatment options, strengthen therapeutic relationships, and improve the lives of our clients!
