- Borderline personality disorder and childhood environment: a cognitive-behavioural perspective
- Carr, Steven; Francis, Andrew
- Borderline Personality Disorder is a complex and perplexing psychiatric disorder. Because the behaviours displayed by individuals with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder demand a lot of attention from mental health professionals there has been much interest recently in the aetiology of Borderline Personality Disorder. This book reviews the recent empirical evidence in terms of the possible childhood antecedents of Borderline Personality Disorder. In particular the book examines the link between childhood trauma, childhood family environments and the development of Borderline Personality Disorder during adulthood. An empricial study exploring the link between Borderline Personality Disorder and reports of childhood events is reported. The book also examines the possible mediating effects of core beliefs and schemas in the relationship between childhood environment and Borderline Personality Disorder. This book hence examines a possible explanation for the link between Borderline Personality Disorder and childhood environments. The book is ideal for researchers, students and health practitioners within the mental health field.
