In brief: Therapy can help
People with bpd can significantly improve their relationships by learning new ways of coping with challenging emotions and personal events, and learning cognitive-behavioral therapy or dialectical behavioral therapy skills that will decrease emotional dysregulation.
Social relationships are improved by this increased stability and self-control, especially in interactions with others.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has substantial empirical support for effectively treating Borderline PD, and a key focus of the therapy is on interpersonal relationships.
