Biosocial developmental model of BPD


Biosocial model of BPD

nihms114226f1

The biosocial developmental model presented here is based on theoretical and empirical evidence reviewed below, which suggests the following:

  1. Poor impulse control likely emerges early in the development of borderline pathology, and this may account for the overlapping biological vulnerabilities for BPD and other impulse control disorders.
  2. The development of extreme emotional lability characteristic of BPD is shaped and maintained by the caregiving environment and is based on characteristics of the child (e.g., baseline emotional sensitivity) and the developmental context.
  3. Reciprocal reinforcing transactions between biological vulnerabilities and environmental risk processes potentiate emotion dysregulation and more extreme behavioral dyscontrol and thereby contribute to negative cognitive and social outcomes.
  4. By mid- to late adolescence there is a constellation of identifiable features and maladaptive coping strategies that indicate heightened risk for later BPD.
  5. These traits and behaviors may exacerbate risk for BPD across development, due to evocative effects on interpersonal relationships and social functioning and via interference with healthy emotional development.

Respecting Emotion & Regulating Emotion: An Introduction to Checking the Facts

Emotions are like a sixth sense because like sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell, they give us important information about our environment that we need to survive. What makes emotions so special is that they help us to act quickly when logical thought is too slow for us to engage in problem-solving. (See Situations below.) However, for people who may be unusually emotionally reactive, sensitive, or have learned to judge or invalidate their emotional sixth sense from culture, values, gender roles, parents, family, loved ones, etc., emotions may not always cause the expected effective response. Therefore, dialectical behavior therapy came up with the skill checking the facts to help us figure out if our emotional responses fit the facts and intensity of a situation and whether an unwanted or distressing emotion needs skills toward accepting and changing or skills toward accepting and tolerating.
