Aggression is a core feature of borderline personality disorder (BPD). Well-replicated results from the general population indicate that men engage in aggression more frequently than women. This article addresses the question of whether gender also influences aggression in BPD, and whether the neurobiological mechanisms underlying aggressive behavior differ between male and female BPD . Mental illness, as the eminent historian of psychiatry Michael MacDonald once aptly remarked, “is the most solitary of afflictions to the people who experience it; but it is the most social of maladies to those who observe its effects.” If psychiatry has typically, though far from always, focused on the individual who suffers from various forms of mental disorder, for the sociologist it is.

The book chronicles the author's experiences as the daughter of a mother and mother of an adopted daughter with severe mental illness. As a young teen, Rachel did not understand and was frightened by her mother's bouts of deep depression and whirlwind activity, the result of her mother's late onset manic-depression (now called bipolar disorder). A majority of the literature on borderline personality disorder (BPD) focuses on its occurrence in women or does not specifically assess for gender differences in clinical presentations. Some studies report that men with BPD may be more likely to be diagnosed with substance use disorders, as well as paranoid, passive-aggressive, narcissistic, sadistic, and antisocial personality disorders (PDs).

Ashley Mears’ new book Very Important People: Status and Beauty in the Global Party Circuit (Princeton University Press, ) provides readers with a closer look at the global party circuit. A lifestyle that offers million-dollar birthday parties, megayachts on the French Riviera, and $40, bottles of champagne.   Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is associated with a number of different signs and order to be diagnosed with BPD, an individual must meet just five out of a total of nine diagnostic criteria, meaning that BPD in one person can look very different from BPD in another. This has led some experts to wonder whether there are actually distinct types of borderline personalities.

THE PRESENT STUDY. The goal of this study is to provide further information on the intensity of BPD and its features across gender.

To ensure that the data largely are free from selection bias, the data for the current analyses come from a carefully selected epidemiological sample of the St. Louis area that includes an accurate and proportional representation of men and women.

Introduction. Strong and stable preference to live in form of the other gender is the clinical symptom of Gender Identity Disorders (GIDs) (1,2).Based on the revised text of the 4 th edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR), this disorder causes continuous dissatisfaction of the gender or feeling of inappropriateness of the current sexual role.

A similar study published several years later in Professional Psychology: Research and Practice surveyed 1, clinicians and reached similar conclusions. Some research has also found that the gender of the clinician affects bias, and that female clinicians are more likely to identify women’s behavior as indicative of BPD.

A recent study called the National Epidemiolog. Bergkvist, who is a vocal critic of the state’s promotion of a genderless structure in schools and an academia focused on gender studies, noted on her blog as an example of the “gender madness.DSM-IV-TR states that borderline personality disorder (BPD) is “diagnosed predominantly (about 75%) in females.” A female to male gender ratio is quite pronounced for a mental disorder and, consequently, has led to speculation about its cause and to some empirical research.

The essential question is whether the higher rate of BPD observed in women is a result of a sampling or. All above mentioned books are available on B-OK.
