Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a Spectrum
Here, you will assess your personal relationship with the symptoms of BPD.
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is often a consequence of experiencing trauma, especially repeated trauma. It’s not a guarantee. Not everyone who experiences trauma develops BPD, and not everyone with BPD has gone through a traumatic event or mulitiple traumatic events in their life. However, we find that, if an individual has been diagnosed with BPD, the chances are very high that they have also experienced significant or repeated traumatic events.
The assessment below will help you evaluate how significant your symptoms are – but you should note that it’s not a form of diagnosis. You really need to work with a licensed professional who is qualified to validate a diagnosis if you are concerned that you may have BPD. Having said that, even if you don’t have BPD, continuing on with this module can help you understand more about yourself and shift your energy to a more productive state instead of the destructive state that many folks find themselves in when they’re living with these types of emotional instabilities.
