Borderline Personality Disorder Prevention
As the development of BPD is highly associated with a history of childhood abuse, prevention and early appropriate treatment of abuse are often considered in preventing this disorder. Prevention of child abuse has societal, parental, and child components. Examples of societal risk factors include high rates of crime and unemployment with low levels of social services. Parent-related risk factors of abuse and therefore of BPD include lack of social support and parenting skills and the presence of domestic violence. In children, risk factors include premature birth, low birth weight, or child handicap.
