BPD Borderline Personality Disorder and Strength’s Based Language

See the Person and NOT the Diagnosis.
The Diagnostical Statistical Manual or DSM has quite a negative lens of Borderline Personality Disorder. It can cause us as clinicians and even people with lived experience to have a negative and limiting self-perception.
After a long journey and a greater appreciation for the environment, I have reframed how I see myself and my clients, I have re-worded the DSM from a strengths-based and trauma-informed perspective.
These are unique to my lived experience and therefore may look different for everyone.
I encourage you to work through reframing the DSM, whatever your diagnosis from a strengths-based approach.


After a long journey, I was recently inspired to reframe the language used around Borderline Personality Disorder. This has been so helpful for me. By doing this activity, I affirmed how my behaviours can be reframed to consider a narrative, developmental and trauma perspective. In doing so I have shown a greater appreciation for the environment’s impact on my behaviours rather than my personality being disordered.
