This presentation was originally reviewed on September 9, 2021, and broadcast live online on September 17, 2021, from 10:45 AM - 12:15 PM ET.
The views and opinions expressed by this presenter in this lecture are their own, and do not represent the views of Sheppard Pratt.
Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a common comorbidity in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). And yet, the effect of the comorbidity on the symptom presentation, course, and treatment outcome of OCD is rarely fully examined in clinical practice. This lecture will examine the clinical presentation when the conditions co-occur and will provide some insights into the treatment of the comorbid conditions.
This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals.
After this lecture, registrants will be able to:
- Recognize the co-occurrence of Borderline personality disorder (BPD) and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
- Differentiate between the function of behavior when as a symptom of BPD or OCD, when the disorders co-occur.
- Apply effective treatment strategies to similar-appearing behaviors depending on whether as a manifestation of BPD or OCD when the diagnoses co-occur.
There is no commercial support for this activity.
