Book Description

This volume focuses on treatment issues pertaining to patients with borderline psychopathology. A section on psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy (with contributors by V. Volkan, H. Searles, O. Kernberg, L. B. Boyer, and J. Oremland, among others) is followed by a section exploring a variety of alternative approaches. The latter include psychopharmacology, family therapy, milieu treatment, and hospitalization. The editors' concluding essay discusses the controversies and convergences among the different treatment approaches.
