There is also considerable overlap between PTSD, BPD, and complex-PTSD (cPTSD) symptoms, suggesting similar biological underpinnings. Read More

Improving treatment outcomes for adolescents with borderline personality disorder through a socioecological approach.

Borderline Personal Disord Emot Dysregul 2022 Jun 15;9(1):16. Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Research Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, University College London, London, UK.

Background: There is a dearth of studies evaluating treatment efficacy for adolescents diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. The few available randomized controlled trials that have been conducted show modest results and treatments appear to have equivalent effects. The current paper draws on (a) the lessons learnt from the last 50 years of psychotherapy research in general and (b) recent advances in mentalization-based understanding of why treatment works, which together point to the importance of following a socioecological approach in the treatment of personality problems in adolescence - a developmental period that insists on a treatment approach that goes beyond the therapist-client dyad.

Is Splitting Related to Resistance to Proactive Interference? A Process-Oriented Study of Kernberg's Conceptualization of Splitting.

Psychopathology 2022 Jun 10:1-17. Epub 2022 Jun 10.

Canadian Institute of Psychoanalysis, Montreal, Québec, Canada.

Introduction: Splitting, as a defense mechanism in Kernberg's theory, plays a significant role in the development and maintenance of polarized and oscillating representations of self/other characteristics of borderline personality disorder (BPD). Although the notion of splitting can be considered from a structural and a functional point of view, almost all empirical studies to date have focused on the former elements to the detriment of related cognitive processes.

Methods: To further investigate the cognitive processes related to splitting, 60 participants were administered the Splitting Index and indexes of resistance to proactive interference (PI) using the interpersonal recent negative task with words that reflect negative or positive interactions compared to neutral words.

Eur Arch Psychiatry Clin Neurosci 2022 Jun 5. Epub 2022 Jun 5.

Department for General Psychiatry, Center of Psychosocial Medicine, Heidelberg University Hospital, Heidelberg, Germany.
