TARA: Treatment And Research Advancements
Research and Treatment
BPD is often misunderstood, misdiagnosed and stigmatized. We at TARA try to provide you with the latest evidence based research results and explanations and referrals to evidence- based treatment. We will provide you with links to the actual research and explanations of DBT, Mentalization Based Treatment (MBT) and Transference- Focused Psychotherapy (TFP).

New BPD Research
The Role of Oxytocin
By Sabine Herpertz and Katja Bertsch
This article is a concise review of current research, clearly demonstrating the interpersonal hypersensitivity, difficulty in trusting others and pervasive misperceptions of situations, especially interpersonal situations. Dr. Herpertz and Dr. Bertsch make a strong case for future research on the role of Oxytocin in BPD.

Support and Psychoeducation Meeting Thursday 7-9 PM
November 12, 19, Dec. 3, 17, 2015
Finally, TARA's group provides a supportive and safe place to learn about BPD. This is a psychoeducation group where people coping with BPD can come together in safety, share their stories and find strength in a common bond of shared suffering and understanding.
If you have been diagnosed with BPD or are exploring the possibility that you might have the disorder, join us for learning, support and conversation. This peer- focused group is practical and solution- oriented. It is neither group therapy nor a support group nor is it a substitute for treatment. This group will provide you with accurate, science- based information about BPD; how it is treated; and options for treatment such as DBT, Mentalization, and Transference- Focused Psychotherapy. Learn techniques to repair relationships, reduce shame and validate your psychic panic. We will discuss fears and stigma and the courage it takes to accept BPD.
We aim to bridge the chasm between those with BPD and their loved ones by fostering compassion for each other. Diagnosis of BPD not required to attend, merely an openness to explore the possibility.
Meetings take place alternate Thursday evenings. For more information call 212-966-6514 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
BPD and Suicide
BPD has a suicide rate of 10%. People with BPD are in constant emotional pain, pain so severe that it is often unbearable. Suicide attempts are often maladaptive efforts to make the pain stop and are not wishes to die. Unfortunately if someone doesn't come along and rescue them, they may succeed.
Because of the stigma associated with mental illness and even more so towards those with Borderline Personality Disorder, families do not have a means to honor those they love who have succumbed to this painful disorder. In order to validate their suffering and to honor their loss, we invite those who have lost a loved one to suicide to post a photo on TARA's Memorial Wall.
