Borderline Personality Disorder Clinic
BPDI current offers a one year program based on the Mentalization-Based Treatment Model developed by Anthony Bateman, MA, FRCPsych and Peter Fonagy, PhD, FBA and a one year program in Dialectic Behavior Therapy as developed by Marsha Linehan, PhD.
Clients must commit to either track for the entire length of the program.
The clinic is composed of three components:
- Each patient is seen weekly for individual psychotherapy or coaching by a member of the team (psychologist, social worker or resident psychiatrist).
- In addition, each patient attends a group therapy session or group skills training session for 90 minutes. This group is led by two team members.
- Lastly, patients receive medication management services from one of our team resident psychiatrists who operate under the supervision of our Clinic Director.
All patients agree that they will use this clinic as their only therapy source and psychiatric medication management source.
Clinic sessions are held in the afternoons and evenings to accommodate work schedules of the patients. We require 24 hours notice for cancellation of appointments.
