Heer Chintan Patel, Jaden Isabella Mascarenhas
Volume: 13 Issue: 4 2023
With a focus on the significance of childhood sexual abuse, this extensive literature review explores the complex interplay between nature and nurture in the context of borderline personality disorder (BPD). BPD is a sophisticated psychological condition characterised by strong emotional reactions and frequently negative behaviours. The review examines early sexual abuse and genetic influences as two important contributors. hereditary research raises the possibility that certain gene variants and BPD are related, elucidating the disorder's hereditary basis. On the other side, research shows a significant link between BPD symptoms and childhood sexual abuse. The review discusses the connection of heredity and abuse and makes the suggestion that these elements may work together to affect the risk and manifestation of BPD. It is noted that there are sample size, diversity, and potential bias limitations. These results highlight the importance of more study to completely understand the complex interactions between heredity, trauma, and BPD.
