abstract

  • This study presents data on a Canadian sample of inpatients with the diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Inpatients with BPD were compared to inpatients with borderline traits. The results indicate that the BPD inpatients have a chronic severe disorder, which onsets in adolescence, and are likely to have suffered early deprivation or abuse.
