As DBT experts with many years of experience, we have helped numerous Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) patients to reduce the severity of the symptoms they experience, to a degree where they are able to go on to live well-balanced and fulfilling lives. It is the high level of success we have achieved that motivates us to continue providing DBT treatment programmes to as many people as possible. Our mission is to ensure that every person who comes to us for help gets the treatment they need, which includes not just regular DBT group sessions but evaluations from a senior DBT psychiatrist too.
Why We Consult a Senior DBT Psychiatrist When Treating Patients for BPD
As highly experienced therapists who specialise in DBT treatment programmes for BDP, you may wonder why we need to consult a DBT psychiatrist when treating our patients. In short, we find the additional guidance from a psychiatric professional to be invaluable in the assessment and ongoing treatment of people that suffer from BPD. Our patients enjoy the following benefits from our close association with senior psychiatrists whose area of specialisation is the diagnosis and treatment of BPD.
- Expert Evaluations from Psychiatric Professionals – A full psychiatric evaluation is a very useful tool in the treatment of BPD and is something that can only be completed by a fully qualified psychiatrist, preferably one that specialises in BPD. When you join our weekly DBT skills group to receive treatment, you can access not just our expertise but that of a psychiatric specialist too.
- Reviews of Prescription Medicines – A DBT psychiatrist is not only qualified to evaluate the psychiatric condition of BPD sufferers: they are also qualified to perform detailed reviews of any medicines that have been prescribed to individual patients. By consulting with senior psychiatric professionals, we are able to ensure that our patients benefit from the best pharmaceutical treatment advice available.
- Treatment of Unusual Symptoms – Most cases of BPD follow broadly similar paths, even if the speed of the onset of symptoms and their severity may vary considerably. When presented with unusual symptoms, the help and advice of a psychiatric expert can often prove to be invaluable.
