Borderline Personality Disorder and EMDR Therapy
Borderline Personality Disorder and EMDR proposes a comprehensive framework for working with this complex group of clients.
The theoretical background integrates attachment theory, structural dissociation, and the adaptive information processing model.
Written in a very practical and clinically oriented style, BPD and EMDR covers different situations such as defensive strategies, unhealthy self-care patterns, rigid core beliefs, emotional dysregulation, self-harming behaviors, and relational problems. Therapists should address these issues in order to prepare clients for effective processing of traumatic memories.
Working through the different phases of EMDR is described as a therapeutic alternative for borderline clients.
