EBD pathway - July 20th 2011, 12:30 PM

Hi guys

My case manager has said that she wants to try and do EBD with me and I was just wondering if anyone else has done this or has any extra info for me. She did explain but I'd like other peoples opinions and experiences on it. Apparently I have emotional disregulation, low mood & anxiety. I have no idea what emotional disregulation means.. probably just saying im a bit mad Im just a bit worried cos when i googled the emotional disregulation (l know, I know) it keeps coming up with borderline personality disorder

anywho.. any info, experiences or anything else is welcome

I don't know what EBD is but I just thought I would say the reason borderline comes up when you search emotional dysregulation is because its a proposed new name for the disorder. Also, that disorder is called emotionally unstable personality disorder in the UK.

That he said your emotions are dysregulated doesn't mean he was even thinking of borderline when he said it, there are other disorders that could cause your emotions to be dysregulated and I believe you don't even have to have a specific disorder to experience something like that at some point in life.

Since you're in England your case manager is probably using the ICD-10 as opposed to the DSM-IV-TR. In the ICD-10, EBD stands for "Environmental Burden of Disease". It's a type of assessment to uncover environmental risk factors and many EBD studies have been done nation and worldwide so your scores can be compared to the averages. The goal of EBD is to identify these risk factors so suitable preventative measures can be taken to keep you safe and improve your well-being. The EBD assessments do cost money, although I'm not sure how much, the link below just says it's very little:


Emotional dysregulation is the proposed new name for borderline personality disorder in the DSM-V. The reason is simply that the name, "borderline personality disorder" isn't a great description of the disorder. In England, the ICD-10 has re-conceptualized BPD by formulating Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder with 2 sub-types: impulsive and borderline. The reasoning for this is in the DSM system, BPD can present itself in different ways and the 2 sub-types in the ICD-10 are the most common, so it allows for greater specificity. The link below gives a summary from the ICD-10:
