Borderline Personality Disorder patients tend to generate in those who interact closely with them, including psychotherapists, a similar, albeit lighter, borderline state. In that respect, BPD is a as much a disorder in the Other as it is in the Self. Dynamic Deconstructive Psychotherapy (DDP) bases its efficacy in helping providers understand and use their internal experience with BPD patients for the benefit of both the patients and themselves. Grounded in the psychodynamic tradition, DDP is an integrative form of treatment that combines experiential, interpersonal, linguistic and neurobiological approaches.
