Abstract Borderline Personality Disorder affects millions of people around the globe. It is important to understand the situations that all who have this disorder go through and how it will affect them emotionally, psychologically, and even physically.

When her plans for the relationship don’t turn out the way she expected, Jayna becomes angry, irritable, and violent and sometimes ends up injured by these men because of her behaviors. Jayna’s feelings for these men go from intense love to intense hate, and she is left feeling a void which drives her to engage in self-mutilation or scratching of her forearm, and burning herself. After such episodes, she then asks to be admitted to the hospital. Lately, Jayna has been in the hospital more often than usual.
“People with Borderline Personality Disorder are like people with third degree burns over 90% of their bodies. Lacking emotional skin, they feel agony at the slightest touch or movement.” This quote was voiced by Marsha M. Linehan, the creator of one of the most successful therapies used to guide individuals with BPD to the light of hope. Problems such as chemical imbalances and early childhood experiences, like abuse or stress, could have stunted brain development. Also, BPD sufferers usually have extremely impulsive and unhealthy thoughts, some involve black and white thinking, dissociation, fears of abandonment, and self-loathing. Being in a relationship with someone thats diagnosed with borderline personality disorder can be a rollercoaster
What is Borderline Personality Disorder (also known as BPD)? Borderline Personality Disorder is a mental disorder that affects how people process their thoughts and behaviors. People with BPD don’t really understand social events or even the dynamics of relationships, the same way that a person with a normal mental set of mind would. It is very hard for them to work within a proper setting, but it is not impossible. I told you what BPD is and now I am going to break it down for you.
Her most severe symptoms of anger, fear, and shame are leading her to self harming behaviors such as suicide, burning, and overdosing on prescription medication and alcohol. I believe that treating these symptoms to include fear of abandonment, rejection, and being alone would minimize her self-harming behavior. These symptoms are complex due to her early sexual abuse and rape. She has been diagnosed with BPD, PTSD, and Alcohol Use Disorder. Furthermore, she has many symptoms under the criteria of PTSD such as: Intrusive memories; dissociative reactions; recurrent distressing dreams; avoidance of external reminders; inability to remember parts of the traumatic event; persistent negative emotional state (depression, anger, and anxiety); feeling detached; self destructive behaviors; problems with concentration; sleep difficulties; significant distress and impairment in relationships (American Psychiatric Association, 2013).

She was an English song writer and singer who impacted the music industry with her powerful and soulful vocals.

My celebrity diagnosis is on no other than the famous English singer, Amy Winehouse. Amy Winehouse was born to her parents Mitch and Janis Winehouse on September 14th 1983. As a child, her parents exposed her to different types of music which sparked up her interest in music and helped her in improving her musical ability. At the age of twelve, her parents divorced and she moved with her mother and brother in Southgate, England. It was at this age that she also attended the Sylvia Young Theater School. But
Patients with borderline personality disorder are characterized by their dramatic mood swings and persistent feelings of instability and insecurity. Their insecurities and sense of instability correlate to the common symptom of desperation to avoid abandonment by friends and family; the patients are often frantic in their efforts to escape perceived abandonment regardless of its practical likelihood. Patients’ interpersonal relationships are stormy with intense ups and downs, especially in their perception of the other person, which can quickly alternate between extremes of idealization and devaluation. Patients may have majorly distorted and unstable self-image or sense of identity; these factors can affect or result in sudden changes in moods,

In the movie “What About Bob” from the year of 1991, the main character, Bob possibly had borderline personal disorder and OCD. I did not chose this movie, I watched it in my high school psychology class. It was the first movie that I watched specifically because of a mental illness. In the movie, the mental illness wasn’t specifically specified by the psychologist. Bob knew something was wrong with him by showing that he always needed his psychologist.
This was a form and type of variable that the researchers had no control over. These disorders are controlled by the mind, not the researchers. The researchers scheduled 50-minute sessions, once a week with each patient for 23 months. Both participants attended the sessions on a regular basis. As they went through therapy, case A and case B patients began to appear less stressed.
I chose REBT as my theory of counseling for the reason that REBT is a more directive form of psychotherapy and the role of the therapist is like a teacher who actively builds a healthy and rational outlook. As a former teacher, this theory suits my personality. REBT counselors help their clients to identify, challenge, and adjust maladaptive beliefs and behaviors. This theory is more structured and directive and includes homework assignments. REBT is the founding form of cognitive behavior therapy.
The cognitive techniques used in REBT manage the self-statements the client has, develop problem solving skills and educate the client to also teach others, the emotive techniques used are imagery, in other words using role play to combat the anxieties, anger or other emotions the client has (Wilde, 2008). The behavioural technique used in REBT is homework which is done outside the therapy session because the client has to interact with the world to over-come the irrational beliefs (Corey, 2014). I think REBT is a great therapy because it has no strict conventions and the client is responsible for their own
