Borderline Personality Disorder Initiative

The Borderline Personality Disorder Initiative (BPDI) at the Semel Institute at UCLA is dedicated to the treatment of borderline personality disorder and to the education of clinicians in evidence-based treatment methods for this disorder.

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a serious psychiatric illness characterized by dysfunction in the regulation of emotion, behavior, relationships, thinking and one’s sense of self. BPD appears prevalent in around 2% of the general population.

BPDI currently offers a one year treatment program based on the Mentalization-Based Treatment Model developed by Bateman and Fonagy. In the summer of 2009, BPDI will also offer a DBT based skills training group in conjunction with private therapists in the community who are certified in DBT.
