Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a personality disorder marked by unpredictable behaviors, emotional instability, and self-injurious conduct, which typically begins in adolescence. BPD patients are difficult to treat. The majority have had child sexual abuse, and roughly a quarter have experienced sexual abuse by a caregiver. The study is an overview of borderline personality disorder, including current and past understanding of its main features, etiology, impact, treatment, and future directions since the public’s recognition of BPD is only at a beginning stage. The passage would be mainly focused on the part of the discussion, where I would illustrate the possible factors that lead to the development of borderline personality disorder from both biological and social perspectives, its impact on individual’ s behavior and social functioning, and the current ways of treatments. The discipline has changed dramatically over the last two decades, with a growing number of specialized psychotherapies and drugs being explored. Since BPD patients are especially hard to treat, an evaluation of multiple therapies should be necessary. Limitations and future directions would be discussed in the conclusion. Overall, the paper is aimed to provide a comprehensive summary for the general public.
