Discuss Cognitive Dysfunctions of BPD
The thinking of people with BPD is dichotomous. They evaluate experiences, people, and objects in terms of mutually exclusive categories (good or bad, success or failure…). The normal interpretation would be viewed as including both positive and negative aspects. Dissociation can also occur. Dissociation refers to times when thinking, feeling, or behaviors occur outside of person’s awareness. It can be as minor as daydreaming all the way to not having any awareness of a traumatic event.
