Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment

Introduction: borderline personality disorder treatment

This book(Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment) deals with the technique used in treating psychosis-prone borderline patients. Because the subjects in this book(Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment) are mainly “psychosis-prone” (Gunderson et al. 1975, Boyer 1986) borderline patients, it would be well to discuss at the outset what is meant by borderline personality organization. The term has had considerable attention in the literature of psychoanalysis and psychiatry since the late 1960s. Here I limit the discussion to the ways in which this type of psychic organization appeared in the background of the patients whose treatment I report.

Kernberg (1967, 1975) holds that the borderline patient has a specific and pathological personality organization, and suggests that this diagnosis is arrived at according to the structural configuration of a patient rather than according to his symptoms and personality traits, even when the latter are highly suggestive. He classifies patients according to the two tasks of the early ego: to differentiate self- and object representations, and to integrate the differentiated self- and object representations.
