Content By: Scott, L. N., Wright, A. G., Beeney, J. E., Lazarus, S. A., Pilkonis, P. A., & Stepp, S. D. (2017). Borderline personality disorder symptoms and aggression: A within-person process model. Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 126(4), 429-440.

Course Description: Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) occurs primarily in the context of emotional reactivity, such as anger and shame. A hypersensitive affective response to perceived rejection, and other adverse social cues, might be heightened among those with BPD. This study follows 117 young adult women to assess the relation between social cues, aggression and personality disorder symptomology. BPD and antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) symptom severity alter the relationship between rejection, shame, and aggression suggesting that characteristics of personality disorders might increase risk of aggression after experiencing rejection. BPD may be especially important as it consistently exacerbates this relationship and clinical interventions are needed to address emotional reactivity in this population as a means of reducing the likelihood of engaging in aggressive behaviors.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Compare and contrast risk for aggressive behavior in women with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD)
  2. Discuss the nature of the relationship between anger and shame with aggression in women with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
  3. Identify the clinical implications of addressing shame and anger to reduce aggression in women with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Borderline personality disorder symptoms and aggression: A within-person process model
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Reflect on the role emotional reactivity plays in the development of aggression among women with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) symptoms
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand how increases in anger and shame following perceived rejection might increase aggressive behavior among women with BPD
