139 Evidence-Based Treatment
of Borderline Personality
Disorder: Clinical and Ethical
The research literature on borderline personality disorder (BPD)
is complex, confusing, and replete with contradictory findings
from heterogeneous, convenient, small, and/or selected samples.
This intermediate workshop focuses on current research findings on BPD with particular attention on prevalence, phenomenology, comorbidity, course, and treatment outcomes. Both
seminal studies and often neglected findings will be highlighted.
Recent psychopharmacology and psychotherapy treatment
studies will be emphasized and recommendations made based
on these findings for making diagnoses and for evidence-based
treatment of BPD.

assessments of adults. The workshop presents the latest
research, most commonly used models, and the incorporation of ideographic data into an assessment. The value and
descriptions of risk-assessment instruments for this population
will be provided, and evidence-based risk management (

cannot be said in a courtroom.
