by Mendoza, Christina, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 63; 1527993
Abstract (Summary)

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is considered to be the most common personality disorder seen in mental health settings. It is estimated that Borderline Personality Disorder affects 1 to 2 % of the general population. Due to the complexity of the disorder, these individuals tend to have difficult relationships with other people, including mental health professionals. Consequently, mental health professionals have developed pessimistic attitudes towards working with this population. The purpose of this grant proposal was to secure funding to provide educational evidenced-based workshops for mental health clinicians in Orange County that work with patients with BPD. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
