Causes of Borderline Personality Disorder
While BDP is not completely understood there are some possible causes of the disease. Childhood abuse or trauma may be a possible cause. There appears to be a vital correlation between Borderline Personality Disorder and sexual abuse or physical abuse during childhood. Genetic links are another possibility as those displaying the disease usually have relatives also suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder. Other possible causes that have been considered include organic brain disease or environmental issues. Most professionals consider the disorder a combination of environment and genetics.
