Borderline Personality Disorder, the Alternative DSM-5 Model for Personality Disorders, and the SCID-5-AMPD

John M. Oldham, MD, MS

This presentation will focus on the dimensional nature of personality, emphasizing a continuum model from personality styles to personality disorders. The development of the Alternative DSM-5 Model for Personality Disorders (AMPD) will be described, reviewing the hybrid nature of the model that incorporates two dimensional components: 1) level of impairment in functioning, and 2) pathological personality trait domains and trait facets. The use of the semi-structured interview, the Structured Clinical DSM-5 Interview for the AMPD (SCID-5-AMPD) will be demonstrated focusing on a patient with multiple personality disorders, including BPD.


At the conclusion of this event, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize the dimensional nature of personality and personality disorders.
  • Identify the Alternative Model for Personality Disorders (AMPD) in Section III of DSM-5 and demonstrate how to use it to diagnose BPD.
  • Explain the Structured Clinical Interview for the DSM-5 AMPD.
  • Discuss personality styles, how to assess them, and classify which styles fit best in relationships and in work settings.
