What else works: evidence for psychotherapy models for treating borderline personality disorder

Dr Nick Bendit

This paper reviews the evidence base for models that have been shown to be effective in the treatment of borderline personality disorder. Besides conversational model, there is now a broad array of psychodynamic and CBT-based models that have been tested in controlled trials. Each treatment will be briefly introduced, and the results of the relevant trials will be discussed. Hopefully we will be able to make some sense of an expanding and confusing literature.
