I've read that Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) can sometimes be useful when it comes to helping people with BPD cope, but they have to WANT it and it's a LOT of work for them, involving both individual and group modalities. That said, DBT is basically a watered-down form of Buddhist meditation and anyone can benefit from it if they make the effort to do so. It's not a "new" thing.
