Edith Carrera 11/5/16 Assignment 9 1.) What personality disorder did you watch the video on (not a trick question) The personality disorder I chose is Borderline Personality Disorder. Key Features for Borderline Personality Disorder : “A pattern of instability in self-image, mood, and interpersonal relationships and marked impulsively; transient dissociative states; highly reactive to real or imagined abandonment” (Nolen-Hoeskema, 2014) 2.) What cluster is this disorder in (A, B or C)? Borderline Personality Disorder is in B Cluster. 3.) Read the description of this personality disorder and the case example in the [N] text. In what ways are the behaviors exhibited by the character(s) in the video consistent with the textbook descriptions? On one of the cases in the video there is a woman named Alexandra. She is a business woman who has an affair with a married man, Dan. Dan and Alexandra frequently have sexual relations and every time he has to go home she gets upset saying “you run away every time we make love” and throws fits towards his departure.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
