Borderline Personality Disorder and Your Son at New Horizons Boys Ranch–
We are here at NHBR to help your boy with Borderline Personality Disorder, a mental health illness in which he might show evidence of unusual depth and variation of moods, unrelenting instability in his interpersonal relationships, self-image and demeanor. Borderline Personality Disorder (also sometimes referred to as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder) might bring about self-loathing, marked change in mood set off by alleged rejection, seclusion or failure. With BDP, he might be hypersensitive to correction or criticism, and his feelings toward others subject to rapid shifts and changes. Feelings of unimportance might lead to risky and impulsive behavior.
If he suffers from Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder he is likely to perceive things (or people) in extremes, either perfect or terrible, something (someone) fantastic one day can be appalling the next; very black and white thinking. This can lead to negligent actions (financially, in food or drug intake, driving or with sex), repeated displays of annoyance or unacceptable anger, self-mutilating or suicidal behavior.
As with many other personality disorders, while the causes for BPD are not established, a combination of environmental and genetic factors, and brain chemistry are thought to be causal contributors. Higher risk might also come from a close family member who has the disorder, or from childhood abuse or neglect.
New Horizons – Providing Tools to Help Your Son with Borderline Personality Disorder.
Without treatment, your child can face grave complications related to isolation and relationship troubles, money or legal problems, many of those connected to substance abuse.
Treatment is primarily therapy-based but can be thorny, because there must be a great deal of trust between him and his therapist, something often difficult to achieve because of the swift and extreme mood swings. Distinctive treatment types might include interpersonal therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic therapy.
Certain medications are sometimes successful, although they are not a normal part of the protocol.
New Horizons – Where Your Troubled Boy Comes for Hope and His Future.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a Christian therapeutic boarding School with a non-threatening, nurturing environment for boys struggling with emotional, academic or behavioral issues. We are here to assist your son in learning to overcome destructive decisions, to attain academic and physical accomplishments, to form Christian values and learn discipline, while learning to view himself as a unique and valuable person.
Is your boy struggling or out of control? Have you seen dramatic changes in his behavior? New Horizons is here to improve his behavior and life goals, to tackle and conquer his problems, in our structured lifestyle on our 10-acre Montana campus.
We utilize textbooks in our academic courses, and also various non-traditional educational techniques, which are designed to more fully engage your son in his education, employing alternative approaches if he has exhausted the conventional approaches. We provide counseling to deal with issues and struggles, and at the same time believe in time for fun, so he’ll have access to a wide variety of outdoor activities, such as rock climbing, fishing, swimming and horseback riding.
New Horizons utilizes a positive, incentive-based discipline system that not only teaches consequences for unacceptable behavior and foolish choices, but also fiscal management and responsibility. Your son will learn that that the choices he makes today can change his course, and he’ll face the world better equipped with the skills necessary to succeed in life.
