Doctor Banks offers intervention to Karen in attempt to aid her condition of Borderline Personality Disorder also referred to as BPD. The first intervention whereby Dr. Banks outlines the process of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy connects to the behavioral theory (Goreinstein 2015). Behavioral theory dictates all aspects of DBT. Behavioral therapy runs from the definition of problems assessment of behaviors to determination of suitable interventions for use. Also it entails how the problem is viewed. The second intervention whereby Karen has to commit herself to attending individual and group behavioral psychotherapy is connected to biosocial theory (Goreinstein 2015). The biosocial theory focuses on the development and maintenance of positive behaviors. According to this theory the core characteristics of behavioral therapy (CBT) mentalization-based therapy (MBT) and psychodynamic psychotherapy can be incorporated (Fertuck 2012). They have proved helpful in alleviating symptoms. Additionally pharmacological treatment antidepressants and antipsychotics could also be used where applicable. Reference Binks CA et al (2009).
