What We Got Terribly Wrong

1. We called it Borderline Personality Disorder

2. We declared it untreatable

3. We claimed only women get it

What We Know But Aren’t Saying

1. BPD is undeniably linked to Childhood Adversity

2. DBT isn’t a miracle cure

What We Can Do

1. Fund more research & Communicate our findings

2. Work harder to reduce childhood adversity
