Tables from this paper

Childhood antecedents of avoidant personality disorder: a retrospective study.
TLDR
It is suggested that early manifestations of AVPD are present in childhood but that various forms of abuse are not specific to the disorder.
Axis I comorbidity of borderline personality disorder.
TLDR
The results suggest that the lifetime pattern of axis I comorbidity characteristic of borderline patients and distinguishing for the disorder is a particularly good marker for borderline personality disorder.
Birth order and memories of traumatic and family experiences in Greek patients with borderline personality disorder versus patients with other personality disorders.
TLDR
Results suggest that traumatic experiences, birth order, and family interactions in the presence of siblings seem to differentially affect the formation of borderline diagnosis compared to other-PDs.
Axis I dissociative disorder comorbidity in borderline personality disorder and reports of childhood trauma.
TLDR
Lack of interaction between dissociative disorder and borderline personality disorder diagnoses for any type of childhood trauma contradicts the opinion that both disorders together might be a single disorder.
Childhood experiences of parental rearing patterns reported by Chinese patients with borderline personality disorder.
TLDR
Positive parental rearing patterns appear to contribute to the development of BPD in China and vary with the gender of the child, and maternal emotional warmth may be a protective factor against BPD.
Risk factors associated with the dissociative experiences of borderline patients.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that both sexual trauma and something intrinsic to the borderline diagnosis itself are risk factors for dissociative phenomena among borderline patients.
Childhood abuse in Chinese patients with borderline personality disorder.
TLDR
The findings suggest that maternal physical abuse is as strong a predictor of BPD in China as sexual abuse, a finding not replicated in North America.
The role of childhood traumatization in the development of borderline personality disorder in Hungary
Background and Objectives: There is a growing body of evidence suggesting the role of childhood abuse in the etiology of borderline personality disorder (BPD). Studies found that complex
Childhood sexual abuse in adult patients with borderline personality disorder
TLDR
The specific symptom profile of BPD patients can be used to predict the presence of CSA in these patients, which has a direct implication in the treatment of these patients.
Developmental aspects of borderline personality disorder.
TLDR
It is indicated that many of the features of adult patients with borderline personality disorder may initially appear during childhood and adolescence and that these features may be used to differentiate borderline from other personality disorders.

Childhood sexual and physical abuse in adult patients with borderline personality disorder.
TLDR
A stepwise logistic regression revealed that derealization, diagnostic group, and chronic dysphoria were the best predictors of childhood sexual abuse in this group of patients.
Childhood trauma in borderline personality disorder.
TLDR
A strong association is demonstrated between a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder and a history of abuse in childhood, including physical abuse, sexual abuse, and witnessing serious domestic violence.

Differential diagnosis of personality disorders by the seven-factor model of temperament and character.
TLDR
It is concluded that low self-directedness and cooperativeness are core features of all personality disorders and are validly measured by the seven-factor Temperament and Character Inventory, but not the five-factor Neuroticism-Extraversion-Openness inventory.

TLDR
The risk factors suggest that trauma and loss, as well as problems with fathers, are important for the development of BPD in males.

TLDR
The authors' findings are based on observations made by staff personnel, particularly by nurses and aides, on 51 patients who displayed many of the traits that have been attributed to borderline personalities.

TLDR
It is concluded that, despite considerable overlap with subaffective disorders, the current adjectival use of this rubric does not identify a specific psychopathologic syndrome.
