Psychological therapies for people with borderline personality disorder.
TLDR
A large number of trials comparing different psychotherapeutic interventions with treatment-as-usual (TAU), waiting list, and other active treatments in samples of all ages, in any setting, with a formal diagnosis of BPD found that psychotherapy may be more effective at reducing self-harm compared to TAU. Expand
Handling suicidal crises in psychodynamic psychotherapy: A process case study.
TLDR
The analysis suggests that a crisis and hospitalization may occur without necessarily damaging the therapeutic process, and the therapist's ability to tolerate aggression, to explore and contain suicide wishes and behaviors, and to flexibly adapt techniques to patient needs are among the therapeutic attitudes and behaviors that can help restore an effective psychodynamic process. Expand
