This education series was designed for professionals to learn basic principles for the diagnosis and treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder.  It is the result of a collaboration between Drs. Brian Palmer, Lois Choi-Kain, and John Gunderson.  It was supported by a grant from the National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder to help promote its mission to provide education and build awareness on BPD.

The series of six, 20-minute modules features videos of patients/families, interactive quizzes, narrated slides, and videos from a number of experts.  The video clips were made possible by Dawkins Productions, Hasting on Hudson, New York.  They are all excerpts from “Living with Borderline Personality Disorder.”  Full videos can be ordered at

Note iPad users:  The modules above use eLearning software that is not currently set up to work on Safari for iPad.  Until that support is provided, it is possible to access the material using another iPad browser.  We tried out "Puffin" from the App Store, which is free and worked just fine.
