AbstractCurrent research on Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) focuses on risk factors and the effectiveness of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) as a treatment method. However, little has been researched or written about resilience, intervention, or prevention. This review discusses 11 studies pertaining to resilience, intervention, and DBT. Factors that play into someone being resilient, as well as elements of intervention methods that are related to improvement in symptoms, are also explored. These factors are then compared with the techniques used in DBT to see if there is any overlap. By identifying patterns and finding any overlap, factors that have been shown to have a positive effect on reducing someone’s susceptibility or symptoms can then be implemented into prevention and treatment efforts.
