Borderline personality is an underlying character structure, marked by a fragmented sense of identity and maladaptive patterns of perceiving, behaving and relating to others. The Borderline is stuck in "yes, but!" or "I hate you! Don't leave me!" stance. In order to get the habitually oppositional patient to respond, the therapist needs to structure the therapeutic messages in a way that they are not easily recognized on a conscious level. Ericksonian hypnosis paves the way.
