Have you worked with a patient who one day idealized you and the other devalued your skills? The Borderline, who finds refuge in Food Addiction. Borderline personality is an underlying character structure, marked by a fragmented sense of identity and maladaptive patterns of perceiving, behaving and relating to others. Food provides a soothing antidote to feelings of shame, betrayal and the longing for a positive mother. Brief Ericksonian Solutions paved the way to reach the habitually oppositional patient who is addicted to carbohydrates.
