General Psychiatric Management (GPM)

General Psychiatric Management is a comprehensive and highly structured approach to the treatment of BPD that is based on the American Psychiatric Association Practice Guidelines for the Treatment of Patients With Borderline Personality Disorder. GPM includes case management, symptom-targeted medication management for the treatment of the mood swings, impulsivity, and aggressiveness typical of BPD patients and psychodynamic psychotherapy. It is most effective when used by experienced psychiatrists and other therapists who have a genuine interest in the treatment of people who have borderline personality disorder.
