Long-term Dynamic Improvement and Recovery in Borderline Personality Disorder: Defenses, Motives, Conflicts

J. Christopher Perry, MPH, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Director of Psychotherapy Research Institute of Community & Family Psychiatry, S.M.B.D. Jewish General Hospital, Montreal, QC

Controlled Treatment trials of BPD are typically shorter than two years and demonstrate significant but small improvements over treatment and/or follow-up. These studies generally do not examine whether the patients psychodynamically improve or recover and, in particular the length of time required for recovery. This presentation examines defenses, motives (arranged in Erikson's developmental framework) and conflicts in BPD and examines how much they change over long-term follow-up. In addition the presentation will determine whether BPD patients improve at a similar rate as non-BPD patients, and whether any patients with BPD attain dynamic recovery and healthy functioning.

Dr.Perry does not have financial relationships with commercial interests.
