BPD/EUPD vs complex trauma

BPD/EUPD vs complex trauma

Conversation with a client today food for thought… I have always loathed the label of BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) in particular. I feel complex trauma/C-PTSD captures this constellation of symptoms so much better and is far more respectful than labelling somebody, who is already struggling with horrific events and difficult feelings about themselves, with a personality disorder. It also honours and validates the impact of trauma, and by treating the trauma, recovery can happen. I work with C-PTSD all the time and get great results with EMDR therapy in particular.
