dc.description.abstractThe high prevalence of BPD hospitalizations, unsuccessful treatments, poor social awareness, suicide attempts and complete suicides were motivating forces for this research study. The aim was to uncover pertinent social factors that exacerbate BPD in the lives of individuals with this affliction and therefore find ways to combat this disease. Since most of the individuals affected by this disease are female, the present research was focused on uncovering factors that increased the likelihood of BPD factors in women between the ages of 25-35 years. Borderline personality disorder is often viewed as difficult to treat. However, recent research shows that BPD can be treated effectively; therefore many people with this condition improve over time (Zanarini, Frankenburg, Hennen, Reich, & Silk, 2005). The findings of this study provide insight into this mental health problem and may potentially serve as useful literature for mental health clinicians at the forefront of this poorly understood disorder.
