An investigation of the mentalization-based model of borderline pathology in adolescents
According to mentalization-based theory, transgenerational transmission of mentalization from caregiver to offspring is implicated in the pathogenesis of borderline personality disorder (BPD). Recent research has demonstrated an association between hypermentalizing (excessive, inaccurate mental state reasoning) and BPD, indicating the particular relevance of this form of mentalizing dysfunction to the transgenerational mentalization-based model. As yet, no study has empirically assessed a transgenerational mentalization-based model of BPD.

In a comedy sketch for MADtv, Bob Newhart, playing a psychiatrist, offers a client definitive treatment for claustrophobia: “It’ll take three minutes and involve two words,” he says. The client nervously agrees to the plan. Newhart prepares to begin the session, briefly hears about the clinical problem, then shouts “STOP IT!”
Borderline personality disorder (BPD) and alcohol use disorder frequently co-occur, yet we know relatively little about risk processes underlying this association. Previous research with nonclinical samples has highlighted how drinking motives may link per...

ConclusionsEvaluating social cues that signal the willingness to affiliate is characterized by a negative bias that seems to be a trait-like feature of social cognition in BPD. In contrast, confidence in judging positive social signals seems to be a state-like feature of emotion recognition in BPD that improves with attenuation in the level of acute BPD symptoms.

Authors: van Veen M, Peters A, Mulder N, van Meijel B, Koekkoek B Abstract In the Netherlands, long-term community psychiatric treatment for patients with a severe mental illness (SMI) is poorly developed and lacks a structured, goal-centered approach. Often this form of treatment is provided by community mental health nurses (CMHN's).Especially in the group of nonpsychotic patients with SMI, it often leads to care-as-usual with limited proven interventions and an unstructured treatment. Interpersonal Community Psychiatric Treatment (ICPT) was developed to provide this group of patients a focus, a theoretical view,...
In conclusion, borderline personality disorder should not be an exclusion criterion for the screening for psychosis or for an early intervention treatment. On the other hand, not every patient with borderline personality disorder, (especially those not suffering from hallucinations, unusual thought content, or persecutory ideas) should automatically be screened for the risk of developing a psychotic disorder.
