Abstract

This paper illustrates the centrality of attachment issues in a manualized psychodynamic psychotherapy for BPD, Transference-focused psychotherapy (TFP). The focus is on how the psychotherapist's awareness of these issues may advance the understanding of psychopathological processes mediated by attachment disorganization, and in particular how the patient-therapist match may foster or impede disorganized attachment.
