Brief Treatment with the Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) patient makes no pretense at wholesale personality reconstruction, but rather considers the impact of the disorder on the therapy process in order to enhance the probability of success in successive brief episodes of care. This workshop reviews the etiology of BPD from both the Object Relations and the Psycho-social viewpoints. Specific protocols for dealing with issues such as Self-injurious behavior and Suicidal Ideation are reviewed.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe BPD specific treatment issues.
  2. Describe protocols to guide in the process of managing specific treatment issues.
  3. Utilize a model to transition long term BPD patients to brief solution focused episodes of care.
